Corn Canon – it’s a blast

No matter what age you – you’ll be hooked once you shoot the corn cannon designed and built for the first ever Colusa County Pumpkin Village.

Colusa County Fair CEO Jonathan Howard showed off the air compressor-powered “weapon” recently, which is designed to propel ears of corn hundreds of feet in the air.

“We will have the corn canon available for target shooting at the Colusa County Pumpkin Village Oct. 21-25,” said Howard. – Prizes will be given when set targets are hit.

In anticipation of the demand, donations of ears of corn are being accepted at the Fairgrounds.

In addition to the corn cobs, there is also still a need for prizes, monetary donations and pumpkin slingshot ammunition (apples, mini pumpkins or persimmons).
