Life is SWEET at Elkader's Sweet Corn Days 2015

Family fun for all ages this weekend, July 22-26, 2015, at Sweet Corn Days 2015 in Elkader, Iowa.

No time for breakfast? No problem! Enter the donut hole eating contest Saturday morning in front of Pedretti’s Bakery. For the little farmers, there will be a kiddie tractor pull. Don’t miss out on the parade. Fire trucks, classic cars, local industries, and many more will be “dressed to impress,” and the kids won’t mind the candy either! Do you throw bean bags? Grab a partner and enter the bags tournament which will be held on Main Street Saturday afternoon.

In Founders Park, the children will be playing gleefully on the carnival rides and inflatables. Wristbands are only $15 for unlimited rides. Balloons by Greeny, face painting, and hair beads will also be available at the park. Check out the dunk tank and see if you recognize who is ready to be dunked! The lush mature trees, picnic tables, and park shelter will provide reprieve from the summer sun. Food vendors will be on location to fill your belly and quench your thirst. Free sweet corn will be served starting at 4pm.

After enjoying the beautiful weather, you may need a way to cool off and relax! Escape the crowd and take a stroll down the riverside trail to watch enthusiastic event goers participate in the Turkey Float. Come back and enjoy the music at Cornstock 2015 with live music and beer garden or take a midnight swim.

These activities and many more will be this weekend in Elkader. For a complete list of activities, please visit the website.
