Ears a party

art8864


For 38 years the Chatham Jaycees have thrown a fun party made famous by scrumptious mouth-watering sweet corn and something else not so mouth-watering that gets thrown – cow chips. The Illinois Championship Cow Chip Throw starts at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday where you can fling two dried dodos for only $5. But food and cow chips aren’t the end, or beginning, to the fun. Friday night watch a soccer match and Miss Chatham Sweet Corn Pageant, and hear music by The Blue G’s followed by Still Kickin’. Saturday, join in more competitions and activities and hear a great lineup of blues all afternoon thanks to the Illinois Central Blues Club. Then three bands close out the night and the festival – A Day And A Wakeup, The Dave Littrell Band and Area 51. A complete schedule and food menu is posted at www.chathamjaycees.net.
