SCENES FROM A MIDWESTERN CORN BOIL

Last Saturday the South Beloit Fire Department held their 4th Annual Corn Boil, so after a hard day at work I moseyed on down to check it out.  It was hot, but for once the heat just felt like August instead of like being inside a blast furnace.

The whole city seemed to come alive for the Corn Boil.  As I walked over, numerous groups of kids shared the sidewalks with me, people on bicycles rolled past, pick-up trucks wound their way through the city streets.
