Corn Palace numbers up

It looks like a good year for visitation at the World’s Only Corn Palace. Director Scott Schmidt told the Corn Palace Entertainment Board Tuesday 267,361 people visited the Corn Palace between May first and September 11th which is up from last year despite the Burr Street construction project.

In other business Schmidt said it looked like a good year for the annual Corn Palace Festival. He reported a current profit of just under $53,000.

The committee also began planning for the 2018 festival and held preliminary discussion regarding mural themes.
