The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) will be hosting ‘A-Maize-ing Corn Day’ on Friday, August 26 on the Christensen Farm Stage. MCGA will be having kids activities from 10 am-4 pm on the stage, located next to the Miracle of Birth Center on the corner of Judsen Avenue and Clough Street at the Minnesota State Fair.
“The Minnesota State Fair is an opportunity for fair goers and families to learn about agriculture and we hope to extend that during ‘A-Maize-ing Corn Day’,” said MCGA Intern Haleigh Ortmeier-Clarke.
During A-Maize-ing Corn Day, MCGA will have various activities for children of all ages to participate in. These activities include a coloring station, pollinator seed planting, playing with ‘corn dough’, story time, corn hole games, a trivia wheel, and dancing with Maizey.
There will also be a book drawing where children may enter to win one of three children’s books provided by the MCGA.
“We hope that everyone who stops by, young or old, will be able to understand how important corn is in our everyday lives,” said Nicole Krumrie, MCGA Intern.
We hope to see you on August 26 for free family fun!
