2007 Particulars:

  • Dates: Jul 27-29
  • Cost: $5 per car
The Scoop:
This is basic, old fashioned fun for the whole family. And I don't mean just for kids. The animals are of course the biggest hits with the wee ones, but those bigger family members will really love the entertainment, or the demonstrations. Learn how to weave or spin, have a ball wandering through the tractor lot.
