The candidate with the most money collected will be crowned Corn Cob Queen for Gladbrook’s 99th Corn Carnival at the Kiddies Parade held on Thursday, June 17, 2021.

The winner will receive some really great prizes and have the honor of riding in the Grand Parade that will be held Friday, June 18th. All money collected goes to help defray Corn Carnival expenses.
