Corn Boil carnival set to entertain
by Hope Zegiel
Sugar Grove—The carnival at the Sugar Grove Corn Boil starts Friday, July 27, and ends on Sunday, July 29.

Stated by the Corn Boil website, the rides will be provided to the Corn Boil by the Wilson Family Show. The attractions and rides will be the same all three days, although the hours will change.

This Corn Boil will mark the second year the Wilson Family Show will supply the attractions for the carnival.

Jerry Swatek, Corn Boil entertainment chair, said that on Friday the normal carnival hours will be from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday, July 28, the normal carnival hours will be from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday, July 29, the carnival will open at 11 a.m. and close at 6 p.m.

At the carnival, there will be wristbands that allow participants to go on unlimited rides from a specific time frame, with one set price. The bracelets will cost $20.

Jackie Link, branch manager from Old Second Bank, said that it is appreciated if consumers intending to purchase bracelets go to the lobby, rather than the drive-through, because there are some papers that need to be filled out.

Wristbands will be valid from 4 to 11 p.m. on Friday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
