THE 3rd ANNUAL CORN FESTIVAL & TRACTOR SHOW IS COMING
The bands, The Stoutmen and Habit Formin’, are on board to rock Windsor’s Klummp Park on Saturday, August 24th from 12 noon to 5 pm.
Food vendors are lined up to offer many varieties of taste sensations with all things corn and many other favorites. We have vendors lined up with corn dogs, corn chowder, corn niblets, roasted corn, french fries, hot dogs, burgers, popcorn, sno cones, ice cream and more. Along with the old favorites, we have several new food vendors who will be offering kettle corn, Mexican favorites, fried dough, fried oreos and more.
We will have children’s games, crafts, and contests to entertain and fun, fun, fun! New this year is our Candy Corn Bingo tent for all ages, so come out and try your luck. Bill Kappler, assisted by Ron Rambo, will be offering hay rides for all!
Join the Corn Hole Tournament for cash prizes. $10 per team of 2 to participate. Don’t have a teammate, sign up anyway and we will pair you up with someone. Never played? No worries! It’s basically just a bean bag toss and anyone can have fun doing it. Let’s make this the biggest Corn Hole Tournament Windsor has ever seen. Cash prizes will be awarded.
Miller Farms is sponsoring the annual Corn Husking Contest. Visit their farm tent and pet the calf or just set a spell out of the sun.
Many friends and neighbors are setting up vendor booths to offer their wares or provide information on their services, so be sure to visit them and shop locally.
The grand finale is our exciting duck race down the creek at 4:30 pm with a grand prize of $100. Tickets are $5.00 each and available in advance at Acclaim Insurance Agency on Main Street or the day of the event. Buy 5 tickets for $20 and increase your chances. Second prize is $75, third prize is $50 and the not so lucky duck who finishes last will receive $25. Winners need not be present to win, but cheering your duck on is lots of fun, so we hope you will stay for the event.
Admission to the event is free of charge, but we ask that you consider those less fortunate and bring canned or boxed food products for Windsor’s Human Development to help feed others in our community.
We’d like to thank our sponsors who have generously funded this event for your enjoyment: Calpine, Inc. DBA Bluestone Wind Farm and High Bridge Wind Farm and the Town of Windsor.
For additional information on any of the events, activities, or to sign up as a vendor, exhibitor of a tractor, or the Corn Hole Tournament, call Elaine at 655-3399 or email: email@example.com. As with any event, volunteers are needed as well.
