Corn Festival


The 40th annual Corn Festival took place in nearby Aumsville. It's just for one day. The best part--buttered sweet corn-on-the-cob--is free. This year over 20 tons were distributed! Another favorite feature of the corn festival is the old-fashioned games for families including the keg toss (though they don't wear kilts), a raw-egg toss, and a corn-eating contest. These kids were ready to go at it for 4 minutes. The event is sponsored by the Corn Festival Committee, the City of Aumsville and many contributors. See a few more photos below.

Buttered corn on the cob — mmmmm yummy! But I can't have it anymore now. =(

Hmmmm - love really fresh corn on the cob. You don't often see it in Menton and if you do it's in sealed packets of two.

I would have loved this Festival. I'll have to plan a summer vacation there some time soon.
