It’s Back to Basics at the 32nd Annual Twin Brooks Threshing Show! This Saturday and Sunday, August 11 and 12, volunteers keep the early ways of farming alive. See how threshing, plowing, combining, corn grading, corn shelling, and hay making were done back in the day. Visit a country school, sawmill, and train depot. Bring the entire family for live music, the flea market, tractor pull, and parades. If you are a Case tractor fan, this is your year! View vintage Case tractors – the 2018 show’s highlighted brand.
The action starts on Saturday with a hearty breakfast at 7 a.m. The tractor parade gears up at 1 p.m. Saturday night pig out at the $7 Pork Supper from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. But don’t miss the Tractor Pull at 5 p.m. (Register to enter at 4 p.m.) Tractor classes include: 1959 and older, 1960-1970, and up to the 8500 model.
