The annual show in 2016 will change up a bit with twice the fun that comes with a double feature. The show will celebrate Pride of Iowa and Horsepower.
It’s time to look in those nooks and crannies and discover what you have that was made in Iowa! In 2016, we’ll celebrate the rich creativity and innovation of Iowans.
From the Thieman Tractor to the Waterloo Boy to the Hart-Parr, we plan to exhibit items that contributed to early farm life that were invented and/or manufactured in Iowa. And, let’s not forget Pioneer Seed, the Polled Hereford, the Maytag Washer and the Red Delicious Apple!
Iowans have always played an important role in contributing to the agriculture success of the Midwest. We need to look no further for ingenuity than right in Albert City where 98 patents have been registered starting as early as 1905.
We are looking for everyone’s help to represent as many Iowa brands as possible. So, talk to your friends and neighbors and sign up to exhibit in the Iowa Pride. For more information, contact Connie Reinert, 712-260-0468. To register online, please click here.
Of course, exhibitors of all makes and models of tractors, implements and gas engines are encouraged and welcome to participate in the annual show.
Plan to attend and enjoy as you learn about the interesting contributions Iowans have made to our agricultural heritage.
Adding to the fun and interest will be the Horsepower Feature. Plans include an Iowa Draft Pony Show Friday evening. On Saturday, there will be an attempt to break a world record for having the largest number of draft horses plowing simultaneously. Other plans include demonstrations and exhibits of horse-drawn implements. For more information regarding HorsePower events, please contact Kelli Kraft, 712-299-4409.
