3rd annual Corn-Fest celebration coming up

DAVISON TOWNSHIP — On Saturday, Sept. 9, the Davison Farmers Market will be buzzing with activity at their 3rd Annual Corn-Fest celebration and the Genesee County Farm Bureau’s Agricultural Simulator.

The Genesee County Farm Bureau will begin the festivities by offering children “rides” on a modern agriculture simulator from 9 a.m. to noon.

The simulator will allow kids to climb behind the wheel of a tractor and actually feel like they are driving it.

Also during this time, the Genesee County Antique Tractor Club will display a collection of antique tractors.

At noon, children and adults can compete in a sweetcorn shucking contest, followed by a best sweetcorn contest at 1:30 p.m. Trophies will be awarded.

While enjoying sweetcorn on a stick, visitors can browse the market’s vendors for produce, baked goods, meat, eggs, flowers and other farm-fresh items. — L.R.
