Corn No Not The Band Whatever Happened To Them Anyway

The Sun Prairie Corn Festival is mostly about people eating hot buttered corn garnished with salt hanging from an umbrella clothesline. There are other things going on too, like munching corn on a grassy hill and checking out the entertainment. This year there was a guy juggling knives while blindfolded (he had peepholes in the front but still). He also did something with golf clubs and a ball, but I was more interested in the corn munchers watching him.


Everyone is thinking, "Corn, corn, corn." ("Packers, corn.") Love the expression on the kid bottom row, to the left. Maybe he has corn stuck in his teeth.

These salt trees are what I remember most as a kid. Yes, it's been around that long.

Some day he'll carry the tote.

Would rather be eating corn

Cheat holes or not, would you want to be in the front row?

Ta da. The guy in the Packers shirt could care less. "Packers, corn, Packers, corn. Beer, curds, Packers. Corn."

  1. You may see this comment twice ...Wow, this corn festival is a new thing for me (can you tell I've never been in the North in summer?) Salt trees is new to me:) You are right, watching the people of the audience is more interesting than the scary knife wielding persons:) Thanks for enlightening us at All Seasons, enjoy the coming week! Now, I need to put corn on my grocery list:):)

  2. Ha, that's what I thought, whether or not this guy can see what he's doing, he's still tossing around knives and I assume he's been eating hot buttered corn too.

    1. I'm more of a purist, Rajesh, but love it on the grill. It's just salt and butter for me though.

    1. I found a few I liked but thought this was the best tune. Also liked the bit about she loves green and yellow (Packers) at the beginning of the song.

    1. It was so hot, Carol, started out the morning waiting in line for solar eclipse glasses that ran out in three minutes, on to dog sitting, walkies, then back to the other side of town for corn fest (way too much walking at that point) and back to little guys again. I'm working up a sweat just typing about it.

  15. Hi Jeanna, I do like a nice bit of hot buttered corn on the cob, with plenty of fresh black pepper. Festivals like this sound like so much fun, who ever thought of it in the first place? The salt tree is bit of genius, how many salt cellar would disappear otherwise? Bet the chaps blades were blunt too, couldn't cut the string of the corn cobs I bet!... As for the video. It did make me smile. Nothing like a good honest corn star to get you smiling!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.

    1. I don't know where it came from but we went there when I was a kid so it's ancient. I never even thought about people nabbing the salt, I guess I still see a lot of it through a child's eyes. I hope you're right but I'll stay away from the front row nonetheless.
