DeKalb Kiwanis expands Corn Fest menu

DeKalb Kiwanis will debut an expanded menu at its Corn Fest booth this year as well as a Family Day Deal on Friday.

Corn Fest opens Friday and runs through Aug. 31 in downtown DeKalb.

The new gourmet corn selections include Elote Corn (mayonnaise, Mexican Parmesan Cheese, spices and herbs) and Italian Corn (garlic, Italian Parmesan cheese, parsley and spices) for $3 per ear. Regular buttered corn remains at $2 per ear.   

On Friday, children eat free with a parent's corn purchase.  

The DeKalb Kiwanis Club has participated in Corn Fest since its inception. Proceeds from the event help fund DeKalb School District 428's Student Leadership clubs: Builder's Club at Huntley and Clinton Rosette middle schools; DeKalb High School's Key Club and DHS graduating senior scholarships.   

Danielle Hill, Bill Scholl and Amy Elliott, members of the Corn Committee, invite adults and youth to help the club in this community fundraising project by volunteering at the booth.

Time slots are limited to two hours and include the use of Kiwanis aprons. Volunteer deadline is Monday; send email to
