Photos: 2013 CornFest Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

by ECT


Yesterday afternoon we made our way down to the 2013 CornFest Ribbon cutting which kicked off the 3-day event. Brentwood Vice Mayor Joel Bryant was on hand to cut the ribbon as he was joined by Dirk Zeigler and others.  The vice mayor thanked everyone for all their hard work and dedication in organizing and making the event happen.

Here are some more photographs prior to the event opening up to the public.

This event is a fundraiser for all the participants and the money on tokens spent will be divided up to the different organizations to help them raise money. For some, its their only fundraiser for the year or in some cases, it’s their major fundraiser.  All of the money eventually goes back into the local community service groups.

According to Dirk Zeigler, the two biggest complaints from last year have been addressed which was dust and parking.  Tri Delta Transit will be providing free shuttle buses form the parking lot to the event gates. There is also a drop off location for drivers to drop off passengers in two locations. As for the dust,  they are using dust abatement measures similar to what farmers utilize–it’s non-chemical.

Drove by last night. I could see a huge dust cloud surrounding the area and no traffic control from PD. Brentwood Blvd was a nightmare (traffic). I really wish they would move this event back to the park and its former location. The charm is completely gone.

Had a great time at the corn fest. The money spent goes to local community service groups so that’s wonderful. The fireworks were fun to watch. There were lots of cheapskates outside like looky lous. I even think I saw bone wood on Brentwood Blvd. getting the benefits from the show without paying for it.
