Someday, when I grow up, I would love to be grand marshal for the Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival.  It's a really cool event with corn shucking, corn eating, and even a parade in the heart of downtown Loveland. The Loveland Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for a grand marshal for the Festival Aug. 22-23.

Nominees must be long-standing community members who have made a significant impact on Loveland. Nominations will be accepted until 5 p.m. June 6. In addition to leading the Corn Roast parade, the grand marshal will play a role in the event kick-off, corn-shucking contest and corn-eating contest.

Last year, our good friends Bill and Elizabeth Markham were the grand marshals.

Here is a YouTube video from Alistair MacDonald that shows the Corn Eating Contest:
