SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- More than 75 tons of sweet corn will be eaten this weekend at the annual Sun Prairie Sweet Corn Festival.
The festival started on Thursday and runs through Sunday at Angell Park in Sun Prairie. The annual festival is hosted by the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce.
There is a $1.00 admission fee on Saturday and Sunday. Children age six and under get free admission. If you park on the grounds for $5.00 per vehicle, admission is included.
About 650 pounds of butter is used on the sweet corn over the course of the weekend. For the second year in a row, the official butter comes from Grassland Dairy Products, Inc., the world's largest family-owned butter creamery, located in central Wisconsin.
Besides the corn, the festival features a carnival-midway complete with rides and games, food booths, live bands, a craft show, petting zoo, family entertainment, and more.
