In case you're looking for something to do this weekend, we've got the perfect solution: The Uptown Normal Sweet Corn Festival! Sidewalk sales, arts, crafts, and flea market vendors await along with 50,000 ears of corn that will fill the roundabout and surrounding Uptown space. You'll experience the best blues around and prove your corn-eating prowess at the Sweet Corn Eating Contest. Stop by the Menold tent to snap a picture with our favorite bear and upload it on our Facebook page for your chance to win an iPad! For this contest, it's okay to be Corny! Just make sure you share the moment and you can enter to win an Apple iPad 32GB worth $350.00!
Here's how it works:
Take a selfie with the Menold Bear at the Sweet Corn Blues Festival in Uptown Normal. Upload it on Menold's Facebook Page! Share for votes! Can't make it to the Festival? You can still win! What's the first thing in your home you would save from a fire? Snap a selfie with it and upload it for your chance to win! The photo with the most votes wins the iPad - so share early, and share often! And to give you a better chance - the contest starts the same day as the festival and runs for a week! You have until September 4, 2017 at noon, to submit your photo and/or vote! You can find the contest page here!
Ready? Set. Smile!
