Loveland Corn Roast 2016

By August 11, 2016 Events

Has your family ever been to a good-old-fashioned corn roast? If not, here is your chance!

Each year the City of Loveland hosts a Corn Roast Festival with a parade, fun contests, and a LOT of corn. This year it seems like they’ve added something new: A corn hole tournament!

There is also going to be: a petting zoo, pony rides, corn eating contests, and a duck race. Along with these fun activities, live music will be playing on both days.
