DeKalb Corn Fest features farm fun for everyone!
On Aug. 27-29, head over to North Third Street (look for the large combine and tractor), for some family fun in downtown DeKalb. There will be an assortment of activities especially for young children.
The DeKalb County Corn & Soybean Growers are coordinating the agricultural activities during Corn Fest. Other participating organizations include the Cattlemen’s Association, Lamb Producers and Pork Producers.
Phil Montgomery, Corn & Soybean Growers president, is heading up the ag activities. This year is the sixth year for the farm groups’ participation.
One of the exhibits is a biofuels mobile education center – a 45-foot-long trailer stocked full of educational, interactive displays and a movie. The education center, provided by the Corn Promotion Board, shows how biofuels are produced and contribute to our economy, improve our environment and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
