DuPage County Fair - Wheaton, IL - 2006

Photos taken July 25-30 - 2006

The following are some of the items that we had on display at the fair this year.  Fair Visitors shelled about 175 bushels of corn by hand.  90% of the corn was then milled by hand grinder or by powered burr mill.  Talking to visitors, supervising the hand corn processing display and working the equipment limited photo taking during this event.
