IT’S ALL ABOUT the vintage tractors for many participants and attendees:
For others, the flea market is the main draw:
Larry and Nicholas Ahrens of The Brown Barn Works craft garden art from scrap metal and more.
New caps are sold by the Rice County Steam & Gas Engines Show.
Under a vendors’ table, I spotted these horses and other merchandise.
People have to eat. You’ll always find something tasty in the food court area:
Randy and I stopped for a mid-afternoon glass of freshly-squeezed lemonade. During the noon hour, this dining area is packed.
When feet tire, you can ride on this horse-drawn wagon or in a bring-your-own golf cart:
Old-time music draws attendees to the music barn:
The Czech Area Concertina Club performs.
For kids (and some adults) the vintage playground equipment entertains:
A view of the merry-go-round in the background from the front of a vintage tractor. There’s a handcrafted seesaw (which Randy and I rode) in between.
When you can’t keep up with the kids/grandkids at the playground, you just have to rest.
Randy and I followed this tractor off the show grounds northbound on Minnesota State Highway 3 toward Dundas.
