So I work in Fort Mohave, AZ and this weekend they are having a Corn Festival. Now if your like me, your thinking, "Corn? How exciting can that be?" It seems everybody gets all excited about the Corn Festival because they can eat and drink beer and listen to live music. I'm not sure what corn has to do with all this. You'd think they'd call it the Eat, Drink and Listen to Music Festival. Corn Festival...OK then.

I wonder if they will have little booths with different kinds of crap from people who ate corn?

Louisiana has the most festivals in the country. Just in a forty mile radius of my home we have the Cracklin Festival (fried pig fat), the Catfish Festival, the Crawfish Festival, the Gumbo Festival, the Rice Festival, the Shrimp Festival, the Buggy Festival, the Fun Festival (they ran out of names), the Eitoufee Festival, the Zydeco Festival, the Yambilee Festival, and probably a bunch more I cannot name at the moment.

Hardly a weekend goes by without some sort of festival here. Maybe next year we can get a Gasper Gou Festival.

Back where I grew up, they had the Johnny Appleseed Festival. Usually there were historical booths like you are thinking of, but the main attraction was the food. Anything that had to do with apples was on the menu. Apple pie, fritters, candy apples, applesauce, you name it. The one that was most popular? Apple Butter. If you've never had this stuff you are deprived, and they made this stuff by the 55gal drum! They even had one booth that had a witch's cauldron full of it cooking on an open fire. He had to stir it with a boat paddle!

I'm willing to bet that in your case, they will have every type of food that has corn and every variation of way to cook it. Find the one that is grilling it, husk on, with butter injected between the husk and the cob. The combo of the charcoal and the butter simmering inside is major $$.

I generally try to avoid festivals in my area ... this being near an agriculture-based college, most of the festial-goers are underage heifers (you know, the kind that squeeze their 200-lb body into leather pants and a tube top and parade around town like they're on a catwalk).

This being the case, i lock my doors and try to drown out the moo-ing with a steady stream of Rammstein (this also works for annoying that Bible-thumping mextdoor neighbor :help ).

It's corn festival because it's harvest season, farmers can get all drunk and mourn this year's loss. :razz

We have "Pioneer Days" here. It's where everyone dresses up like pilgrims, eats turkey legs and makes driving downtown hell. There's nothing like almost running a wandering sheep over in the middle of the city..

Goofy's favorite festival

OMG!, we have a ton of festival's here. We have the "Corn Fest", yes they eat lot of corn there and live music and BEER. We also have the "Potatoe Fest", yep you guessed it, they eat potatoe's. Also, we have what they call "The St. Stan's Fest", just alot of drinking and live music for that one. Then we also have the county fair's that go on durning the summer. Now every festival and fair I mentioned has rides too. To me it's a "Come give me your money" deal. I have attened each one at least once, maybe twice, but they aren't getting my money no more. They were fun when I was much, much younger, but now, HELL NO. hehe Just makes driving in town and in the area they are being held at unbearable.
