This year’s DeKalb Corn Fest features some farm fun, including corn and tractors! On Aug. 26-28, head over to North Third Street (look for the large combine and tractor), for some family fun. There will be an assortment of activities especially for young children.
The DeKalb County Corn & Soybean Growers are coordinating the agricultural activities. Other participating organizations include the Cattlemen’s Association, Dairy Association, Lamb Producers and Pork Producers.
Phil Montgomery, Corn and Soybean Growers president, is heading up the ag activities. This year is the second year for ag-related activities. Montgomery says they have expanded the number of interactive family fun sessions and exhibits.
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.
