Sweet Corn Pageant Moved Indoors, Queen Crowned Friday

Posted by wlpo on August 13, 2016

The 2016 Mendota Sweet Corn Queen was chosen Friday night.

The threat of severe weather forced the pageant indoors, to Mendota High School. There, Whitney Lewis would eventually be crowned this year’s Sweet Corn Queen.

Lewis is a 2016 Mendota High School graduate. She’s planning to attend St. Mary’s College in the fall.

The 69th Annual Mendota Sweet Corn Festival will have events through the weekend, and a grand parade will be stepping off tomorrow at 1:00.
