Corn Carnival off to a great start
The Corn Carnival in Blakesburg is in full swing!
Festivities kicked off Thursday and will ran through Saturday.
Activities in the park held strong all day Friday.
A vendor fair is taking place at the elementary school, with more than 25 vendors participating.
New this year is a bonsai tree exhibit, with all things bonsai.
Beckham Miller brought several of his bonsai trees to the exhibit and said any tree can be placed in a pot and grown.
â??The correct pronunciation is bonsai, meaning a tree in a dish. Pretty much any tree can be placed in a pot and grown. Typically smaller leaves, something that can be reduced. The idea is to make a small plant look like a full grown, old tree,â?? said Miller.
Another exhibit this year is called â??Our Nationâ??s 27 Official Flagsâ?? by Chuck Bates.
