It's one of the biggest parties of the year, for Loveland. A parade, bands, beer, vendors, a duck race, and roasted corn. Lots and lots of roasted sweet corn.

A sure sign that summer is winding down is when it's time for the "Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival" in Loveland. It's one of the events in town that sets the Sweetheart City apart from its neighbors.

It's hard to say how many teams they have signed up for the big Corn Shucking Contest, or how many ducks will eventually be entered into the Loveland Rotary's Duck Race, but it's nearly impossible to say how many roasted ears of corn will be enjoyed over the course of the event.
