Kenton, OH

Kenton, OH seems like a normal Midwestern city until you notice the Buckeye Firearms store located in the town square next to a tanning salon and Domino's Pizza.

Then I found out they have an annual event that draws over 10,000 people from across the world that they claim "has been one of the most exciting annual events in the Midwest". It used to be called the Kenton National Coon Dog Field Trial but recently changed the name to... drum roll, please... Kenton National Flea Market and Festival. Unbelievable. Granted most of the people that would attend a coon dog festival would also attend a flea market but is it really necessary to make it a national flea market?

If you pass through a trailer park with one farm house on the way to Kenton, you could be in Jumbo, OH.
