Corn is one of the best grains out there -- full of flavor, versatile and good for you. It's particularly delicious roasted, and the city of Loveland must know that, because today and tomorrow, it's hosting the Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival, featuring a Friday night street dance, a parade, corn for sale, live music, contests, a beer garden and more.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
