Time to celebrate the fall harvest with the Annual Corn Festival at the South Shore Natural Science Center. The family event will be held Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a rain date of Sunday, September 18, 2011. A South Shore tradition for 35 years, the festival features hayrides, sack races, animals for petting from local 4H Clubs, local musical acts including the Norwell High School Jazz Band, demonstrations from local crafters including weavers, Nantucket Basket makers and woodturners. True to its name, the Corn Festival also offers edible corn-related delights such as popcorn, corn-on-the-cob, corn muffins and homemade corn chowder in its Kernel’s Kitchen. Admission for non-members is $5 for adults and $3 for children with a maximum of $20 per family. Proceeds from the festival go toward enhancing and expanding the science center’s environmental education programs.
