While in South Korea, Amy and I attended no small number of local agricultural festivals (most notably the Goesan Clean Pepper Festival and the Yongin Mallard Festival). We decided to hit up the Manitoba equivalent – the Morden Corn and Apple Festival – to get valuable inter-cultural data and perhaps some free corn. The weather was largely uncooperative, but we did see some extremely dangerous-looking carnival rides, no end of food vendors and a highly advanced automatic corn de-husker. Also, free corn.
