MITCHELL, S.D. — Work has begun to ready the Corn Palace for the 2010 festival in late August.

Seasonal workers hired by the city of Mitchell started preparations on Wednesday. Some knocked down dock, rye and brome grass from last year’s display, while others began tying fresh dock to trim the Corn Palace.

Nineteen-year-old Cade Hearnen says it’s a fun job, and he especially enjoys talking to tourists who stop by.
