I love corn-on-the-cob! I do! I love it. It only lasts a couple months every year, so during that period my wife and I eat corn at least 2 or 3 times a week. So it's no surprise that I a thrilled about the 2011 Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival in Loveland this weekend.

There is a corn shucking competition, a corn eating contest, a corn recipe contest, roasted and boiled corn to eat, and "corn-related" activities.  I don't even know what they are, but it popped my kernels when I heard about it.

The 2011 Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival is today ( Saturday, August 27th) at Fairgrounds Park downtown Loveland.
