Farmers will be getting hands-on at the Hand Cornhusking Competition this weekend in Central City.
The community has twice played host to the state competition, but now they host the national event as well.
State Contest Chairman Barry Marsh said, "It's a little bit of history of how we used to do things and I think even young people would benefit from watching it, corn husking contest."
Events run Saturday and Sunday in Central City and include other fun family activities like a melodrama and petting zoo.
They expect visitors from at least a half-dozen Midwest states. Missouri alone is bringing a delegation of 30 competitors.
Events take place Saturday and Sunday at the Merrick County Fairgrounds in Central City.
