The Corn Convention

Do you think there is a kernel of truth to the claim that the Sixth Annual Sweet Corn Fiesta is going to be “ear-resistible”? Or is that just a corny statement? Organizers say that you can “butter up the family” by taking them out to the festival. That’s true; they will probably be a-maized by all of the stuff going on: samplings of different types of corn, for sure, but also kids’ games, music, rides, and of course, a corn-eating contest. Don’t eat too much, though, or you might start to look husky! The festival is held in celebration of the growing season and the farm workers who make it happen. Last year, 10,000 people came to chow down. Admission costs $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 6 to 11, and is free for ages 5 and under. Call 561-793-0333, or visit
