THE CORN FESTIVAL & TRACTOR SHOW THIS WEEKEND

We’re excited – come rain or shine, the tractors are heading our way and that’s not all! Bill Olin is bringing his hand cranked corn sheller so you can experience what it was like in yesteryear to shell corn the old-fashioned way. Join us for an old-fashioned hayride. Tractor entries are pouring in and we can’t wait to see all of the tractors on display. There is still time to register your tractor, just give Ken a call 655-1660.

Live music by Habit Formin’ and The Stoutmen will be performed all afternoon for your listening pleasure, so grab some food and one of the many tables, chairs, tents and pavilions and set a spell. Speaking of food, corn recipes will be served throughout the park, but that’s not all – food and snacks abound. Watch as fresh kettle corn is made and take a bag home.

Games and crafts for the kids will keep families happy and thanks to our sponsors, Calpine Corporation and the Town of Windsor, local churches and businesses, the admission to the Corn Festival is free of charge and most of the activities are free or at a nominal cost. We only ask that you consider donating non-perishable food products for those less fortunate in our community. Barrels will be set up at the two entrances and the food will later be distributed by Human Development.

Register for the Corn Hole Tournament and win 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.

We can’t thank Windsor Bible Baptist Church, Our Lady of Lourdes, Diane Wallick, our Windsor Librarian, the Windsor Civic Club and the Windsor Partnership enough for the games and activities. They are ready to be sure your youngsters have a great day. Many organizations are joining us to provide information about their services and vendors are bringing all sorts of wares and crafts to offer for sale.

Duck race down the creek at 4:30 – Purchase a ticket for $5.00 or buy 5 tickets for $20 and increase your chances to win cash prizes.

Let’s end our summer by enjoying a simpler life – the life that brings agriculture to the forefront. Let’s not forget farming is still foremost in providing us with some of the most important basic needs – meat, poultry, milk and vegetables. While many farms have gone by the wayside, we are privileged to live in a community that still has a fairly strong agricultural representation and a very real sense of community. The Corn Festival and Tractor Show exemplifies our agricultural roots. Our friends and neighbors unselfishly bring their tractors out to Klumpp Park to share a little history with all of us. Come out on Saturday, August 24th between noon and 5:00 pm as they proudly display their tractors, large and small, old and new, restored or original, for all to enjoy.

Be sure to visit the Miller Farms tent, pet the calf, join the corn husking contest and win prizes, or just sit and enjoy the company.

Thanks to Bill Kappler and Ron Rambo, new this year are tractor pulled hayrides around the park.

If you are willing and can get your tractors to the park that day, please let us know as we would love to have you. There is no fee for registering your tractor and there is plenty of room for more. To register, call Ken at 655-1660 or Elaine at 655-3399 or stop at Acclaim Insurance Agency at 121 Main St.
