August 23, 2013 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

It’s supposed to feel like ‘summer’ again this weekend, just in time for the 31st annual Nebraska State Antique Tractor & Horse Plowing Bee/Rae Valley Old Threshers Reunion.
The three-day event gets underway Friday evening, Aug. 23 and will conclude Sunday afternoon, Aug. 25.
Whether you are young or young-at-heart, been there before or this will be your inaugural visit, there’s something for everyone.
This year’s festivities will get underway at approximately 5:30 p.m. with the arrival of the tractor cade. A favorite from past years, the ‘cream can supper’ will be served at 6 p.m. Later in the evening, at approximately 8 p.m., there will be an open barn dance and music jam session.
Saturday morning will feature an antique auction starting at 9 a.m.. Working events and plowing are slated to get underway at 11 a.m.
