Hold on tight, it’s a busy day on the midway plus so much more to see and do! Have you visited the booths in the commercial tents? Have you seen the pig races or the magic show? What are you waiting for… there’s only two days left!

Start your morning with Breakfast and the Horse Pull at 9am. Draft teams use “Horse Power” to pull the sled the farthest down the track. The Grandstand Concessions and Edith’s Cakes and Catering will be serving breakfast throughout the morning.

Take a ride on a few carnival rides or test your skill in the midway games starting at 12 Noon. It’s Family Day on the Midway with discounts on 20 tickets for $10 or $1.25 each from 12 Noon to 5pm. Regular ticket prices resume at 5pm, 10 tickets for $10 or $1.25 each. Visit our Midway Rides Page for more information.

At 1pm local and regional Farm Tractors pull the sled down the track to see who will go the farthest. This well attended event is known for a variety of tractors and quick moving show with the two sled operation by Luedtke’s Eliminator.  Go to the Tractor Pull event page for more information.

It’s a busy afternoon in the Farm Progress Arena with shows and auctions. Dodge County Holstein Futurity Show at 12:30 pm and the Small Animal Auction at 4pm. Support area youth with a bid or an applause as they display their year’s accomplishments.

At 7pm see the Supreme Showmanship Contest in the Farm Progress Arena.  Watch top junior and senior showmen of beef, sheep and swine projects compete against each other in showing their own animal, then showing animals in the other two species.

Canaan Smith will highlight the day as the Grandstand Stage performer at 8pm presented by WXRO 95.3 FM.
