The 2012 show was a bit muddy. The show helped stop the drought of 2012. Hope everyone can come back when weather is better.
Thank you to all the people who helped getting the grounds ready ~ to all the people that displayed their "toys" ~ to all the vendors ~ and especially all the visitors.
Plan to attend the 2013 show August 29th to Sept 2nd.
The featured tractors for year 2013 will be
International & CUBS.
