The creators of Cornstalk DSM promise it to be a "corn-tastic time." The corn-themed event celebrates Iowa's biggest—and possibly tastiest—crop. The festival is comprised of four distinct events: Cornball, Cornmeal, Cornucopia, and Cornholio. At Cornball, VIPs enjoy gourmet corn-based dishes and beer pairings before dancing to tunes from a DJ, while at Cornmeal, guests can sample bites of corny dishes from local restaurants and catering companies as live music from The Snacks fills the room. For corn purists, Cornucopia offers live music and corny awards with an all-you-can-eat sweet-corn feast featuring flavor-infused butters, and at Cornholio, 32 teams compete in games of old-fashioned corn hole (bags) and enjoy beer from Exile Brewery. A portion of the proceeds from the three-day event go to the Food Bank of Iowa.
Cornucopia offers live music and corny awards with all you can eat sweet corn feast.
Elena Tobiash and Igor Velikanov are so comfortable on their skates, they look like they float over the ice instead of skating through it. Elena is a former member of the Russian Olympic skating team, while Igor entertained audiences as a member of the Russian Ballet on Ice. Both have more than 15 years of coaching experience, as well as certification from the United States Figure Skating Association. Today, they pass on their training to young skaters through their Learn to Skate and Power Class sessions, empowering youngsters to glide with confidence and grace.

Between its two locations, Sapphire Gymnastics Academy takes up more than 30,000 square feet of space. And with good reason. The gym is teeming with gymnasts and activities.

In addition to coaching young gymnasts, Sapphire also hosts various fun activities, including sleepover parties packed with arts and crafts, games, and movies.
