This weekend I went to the Almelund Threshing Show in Almelund Minnesota with my folks. We wandered around the swap meet, Dad found a pool light for his shop that he just loves. I actually didn’t buy anything. Surprise of surprises. I ate a Buffalo Bratwurst for lunch. It was really good.
Parking was in a field, as is usual for events like this. There was a real ass directing traffic at the front gate. One of the other parking attendants was stubborn as a mule. (sorry, I love these types of puns)
One of the coolest things is the steam tractors & a working sawmill.
They even had a scale replica sawmill running.
There where piles of old tractors, such as this Waterloo Boy.
There was a stagecoach giving rides around the grounds. My sunglasses fell on the ground and the driver stopped the horses inches from them stepping on the glasses. Nice guy!
We where in a building, and herd the driver yelling at his horses outside, so quick went out to see what’s up. At first I thought they had broke out of harness. He was just demonstrating his horsemanship. It was an impressive show.
There were even a few cool old cars intermixed with the tractor goodness.
I have been to the Almelund Threshing show. Great family fun. They have a website you can go to. almelundthreshingco.org
My Dad won the raffle tractor a few years back. They raffle off one every year. The guy that restores the raffle tractor has a cool website also. rosewoodrestoration.org
