Randy has been out in New Harmony for several days fighting the fires. Several homes have been reduced to ashes in New Harmony. The sun was bright red this morning from the glow of the fires. The Southern Utah skies are filled with ashes.
Today, August 29th was the Enterprise Corn Festival. We traveled up to Enterprise which is forty minutes north of St. George. There were so many people there! Every year there are more and more people. This year we decided to stop and pick up our corn first thing before going to the booth area which was held at the Enterprise High School. Our grandson Chance was working at the Navajo Taco booth. We had a Navajo Taco and it was delicious! Too bad I didn't get a picture of it. Jandi was working at the car wash in town. Lacey was home helping her mother Annette make cakes for the dinner. Annette was busy making batches and batches of bread dough for the Navajo Tacos. They were a big hit and they were selling out.
The American Tribal style Sha'waza dance troupe was only one of the groups entertaining at Enterprise's annual celebration of the harvest of locally grown produce.
Although the Corn Fest is renowned as a city-wide farmer's market that draws more visitors than the town's population, the event has grown into a family festival that features rides for the children, a car show, a concert stage for local and visiting groups, a volleyball tournament, a petting zoo and an array of business booths. Along the main street through town, other produce vendors took advantage of the increased traffic. About 90 cars were entered in the car show this year, and more than 80 vendors had set up booths.
Here is a picture of Enterprise Corn. Yummy!
They also had a car show there. These are just a few of the cool cars that were there. Here's Jandi at the car wash. The Jack Holt home has lots of activity. They sell THOUSANDS of ears of corn. They had a five dozen limit this year. Their corn sells for $4.00 a dozen and is worth every penny. We bought our five dozen. They also have a tent set up and sell all kinds of fruits and vegetables. I bought a watermellon, cantalope, peaches as well as tomatoes. Oh, my goodness, the peaches are WONDERFUL!!! So sweet, juicy and flavorful. They also had all kinds of baked goods. They sold hot buttered cooked corn and Navajo Tacos. We have been friends with the Holts for many years.
