Family Corn Festival
It is a scene from the recent Family Corn Festival held last
August 24th at the Ontario Agricultural Museum near Milton,
Ontario. The main attraction was freshly steamed corn-on-the-cob. A
large steam engine cooked the corn with the husks on, sealing in
all the fresh grown flavor. Visitors could sink their teeth into
this tempting treat as they enjoyed the sights and sounds of square
dancing, dixie-land band music and demonstrations of corn husk doll
and wreath making, corn husk pipes and more.
