The local Shriner chapter hosts its annual fall fundraiser this weekend, which means plenty of fresh roasted corn.

The Cornfest and Arts & Crafts Show is now in its 17th year. Visitors can get a meal of sweet corn on the cob, a hot dog, chips and a soda for $8.

The arts-and-crafts fair features more than 60 vendors selling jewelry, chocolate, leather goods, wickless candles and many other items.

An exhibit will portray the organization's philanthropic cause, Shriners Hospitals for Children, which provide free health care for needy kids.
