8月8日（土）『ラハブラ・コーン祭り』に友人ＭＡさんと行ってきました。ロス郊外サウスベイ地区からは、91番フリーウエイを16マイル東に走りビーチ通り(Beach Blvd) で降り、北東に11マイル走ったところ。先週末金曜夕方から日曜まで開催。「コーン・イーティング・コンテスト」は土日午後1時半から開催されました。 On 8/8/2009, I went to "La Habra Corn Festival" with my friend MA. From South Bay, a suburb of LA, we took 91 Fwy East for 16 miles, exited at Beach Blvd and went North East for 11 miles. It was held last weekend from 8/7/09 to 8/9/09. "Corn eating contest" was held from 1:30 PM on Saturday and Sunday. La Habra Corn Festival official site (公式サイト） http://www.lahabracornfestival.com/ 201 N.

From high school students to adults, many volunteers were taking the husks off the large volumes of corn and sticking a wood bar in each ear of corn.
Corn husks were removed. Lots of freshly harvested corn were boiled and buttered.
Corn was sold at $2 per ear. White sweet corn was sweet and great!
sweet warm Funnel Cakes They deep-fried a corn cake, put powder sugar and Strawberry preserve on the top upon your order. It was $4 or $5 per cake. It was full of oil and sugar, so I did not get it......
The annual Perseid meteor shower is expected to put on a good show this week for those willing to get up in the wee hours of the morning and wait patiently for the shooting stars. In North America, the best time to watch will be between midnight to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12, but late Tuesday night and also Wednesday night could prove fruitful, weather permitting.
Now it's 3:14 AM on 8/12/09 in Los Angeles. I have been looking up the sky from 2 AM, but it's been cloudy and I cannot see any star. They say the Perseid meteor shower can be seen until Aug. 14th or 15th in north east direction, so I will try later......
