Although we haven’t been quite as regular at attending the Old Threshers Reunion as we have the Iowa State Fair, we usually attend. It’s a great event. It has so many different parts. There is the original Threshing reenactment, an old tractor show, an old car show, antique dealers, a railroad and street car line. Plus an old fashioned printing press area, a log cabin village doing the 1840s, a quilting area, a carousel, dolls, and a theater museum. In short there is so much to do at Midwest Old Threshers that you couldn’t possibly do it all in one day and there is going to be something for everyone and I didn’t even mention the music concerts or the sorghum demonstration or…. just come, OK? Trust me, you’ll love it.
