Circus and Corn Days draw considerable crowds...

Friday, August 3 was a busy day at the Allamakee County Fairgrounds in Waukon, as both the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus and the annual Waukon Corn Days celebration took place that evening. Two shows of the circus performance sponsored by the Waukon Park, Recreation and Wellness Department to benefit its youth program offerings both experienced full crowds, as depicted by the long line emerging from the circus tent pictured above. A steadily sizable crowd also graced the food stand areas of the fairgrounds (pictured below) for the sweet corn meal, with an abundance of other activities available for all ages to help celebrate the annual Corn Days event. Addison Lickiss (pictured below), eight-year-old daughter of Les and Becky Lickiss of Waukon, was crowned this year’s Little Miss Corn Days. Additional photos from Corn Days and the circus appear on Page 2A inside this week’s print edition and e-edition of The Standard. Standard photos by Joe Moses.
