North Ridgeville in Northeast Ohio is famous for its annual Corn Festival.  Folks come from as far as Florida to enjoy the sweet corn grown here.

They serve it boiled, grilled, popped even puddinged! 

In addition to the picked at peak corn,  the other main attraction is the corn eating contest.  It's divided into four age groups: under 5, 6-12, 13-17, and 18+.  

I snapped this photo of the youngest ones chowing down. Linus, the 5-year-old winner, gobbled 2.5 corn cobs in just three minutes.  Had me grinning from ear to ear.
