Michael family to ride through parade
in honor of Grand Marshal George Michael

Once every year, hundreds gather on the streets of Haxtun for Corn Festival, undoubtedly the town’s biggest event of the year. A parade will head down main street past the old light plant where the Town’s generator sits, continue in front of the Haxtun Fire Hall onto the newly constructed portion of Colorado Avenue with new cement work, decorated planters, benches and light posts and carry on past town hall and this year when it does, the backbone and drive for so many of these endeavors along the parade route will be honored for the legacy he left in Haxtun.

Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band added to lineupn Things keep getting bigger and better at the annual Corn Festival in Haxtun! Those with energy to spare after a fun-filled day of activities at Haxtun’s 96th annual Corn Festival on Sept. 30 can rock out to the sounds of a live concert by Judd Hoos, a rock band based in South Dakota’s Black Hills, and Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band.
