Letter: Glad to see Corn Fest returning to downtown

To the Editor:

I am truly excited about Corn Fest finally is coming back to the downtown DeKalb area.

I went to Corn Fest the first two years that it was held at the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, and it just didn’t have that “hometown” feel. I didn’t see anyone I knew, and there was no shade to keep cool. And I missed being able to go into the stores downtown to see what they had on sale.

Now that there will be no more “On the Waterfront” in Rockford, maybe DeKalb will be able to book some older great classic rock bands, and once again to have some bleachers set up for more people to be seated while listening to the music.
