Video: Zeigler Talks Brentwood CornFest

by ECT


Yesterday, we made our way down to the 21st Annual Brentwood CornFest to observe the set-up of this wonderful three day event which kicks off Friday afternoon followed by fireworks in the evening.

Dirk Zeigler, one of the CornFest organizers, provided a little preview of what to expect this weekend and brief overview. The event includes  fireworks, food, beer, music,  rides, games, vendors, and some new additions.

Zeigler explained that during the event, it’s 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 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.

Zeigler also stated there will be ambulance presence, roving first aid services and plenty of water for the upcoming three-day event. There will also be plenty of security on hand both armed and unarmed to ensure public safety.

I used to love the Cornfest. However, I don’t have any desire to attend while it is held in dirt lots. I can appreciate the fact that they are doing what they can regarding the dust and parking, but it is just not the same. They lost the charm when they moved if from downtown….the real downtown. Brentwood has a nice park but no one really cares as it has lost its function and the city in many ways has lost its identity. Shame.

Mr. Zeigler has done a great job, considering the change of location and challenges with dust and parking. It’s good that they are still bringing in some money for different organizations.

It always beat up city park pretty bad when it was held there. Even though there are some people at city hall that will tell you the park is bigger than it used to be, it is only true if you include the paved part.
