    Sweet Corn Fest is a pretty big deal in CR. However, up here it's the My Waterloo Days and it's awesome. Kind of a lame name, but then again, the city is named after being built around a river.

    If you go with my waterloo days you can through in Strugis Falls or whatever the name of the celebration is.

    St. Judes Sweet Corn Festival was always a highlight of the end of the summer, nothing like eating burgers, sweet corn and pie on a nice night.

    I was from a Southeast Iowa small town, but I wouldn't exactly say I was clueless about anything aside from Kirkwood. I worked for a co-op in a town 20 miles west of CR so other than classes most of my time was spent outside of the city.

    I wasn't saying my Waterloo Days was the best one, and I loved going to St. Judes Sweet Corn Fest when I was in HS. Just stating what the in town celebration was called (I honestly have no idea what Cedar Falls has), and that the one in town is fun to participate in.
