The sweet corn is ready in Southeast Iowa! Come one come all. This week has come all too early, but none the less it is here. Sweet Corn Festival 2010. We are excited to join the fun and watch the town of West Point, IA be transformed into the hub of sweet corn husking, cooking and eating! The festivities will start off with ShuckFest on Wed Aug 11th, when 17 tons of corn will be shucked in less than 2 hours... Ladies and Gentleman, that is some serious shucking! WOW! From Thursday - Saturday you can join the fun on the midway. Arts and Crafts fair will also be Thursday - Saturday. To check out the schedule for the festival you'll find it on their website http://www.westpointcornfestival.com/. There will be a free concert with Jake McVey on Saturday night. On Sunday the festivities will end with a good old Iowa Tractor Pull. Join us this weekend at the Sweet Corn Festival so we can enjoy the food, folks and fun!
