CANTON -- Thousands upon thousands of people lined the road early Saturday morning to catch a glimpse of the annual Timken Grand Parade.
The two-hour parade for the 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame Festival started promptly at 8 a.m. and traveled 2.2 miles northbound on Cleveland Avenue.

Some parade goers arrived 12 hours early and camped out overnight to guarantee their spots on the route.
The parade featured multiple massive balloons like Kermit the Frog, a football player and a golden dragon. "Spin it! Spin it!" fans screamed as the giant balloons went by.
It was all mixed in with loads of local marching bands, floats, businesses, animals and clowns.
But the main attractions were the 2012 class of new enshrinees and previous football greats.
