Also our new tradition:

The 3nd Annual Wheat Field Rendezvous Vintage Snowmobile Show & Swap Meet, adding many more things to touch and see.  Sorry we will not having snow to operate these old timers, but I am sure they will start and purr just like they did 50 years ago.  More exciting events to come as the winter become summer. Rumors of Drags races and Radar gun runs on a straw are in the air…Stay tuned.

So come out with the family and enjoy tractor pulls, lawnmower pulls, games, lunch, and much more!

About the show, one of the executive who has been with the show many years, “The Bare”, has said that “This show offers something for all ages; nostalgia weekend for seniors, learning experience for those under 80 and a walk down memory lane for all. Kids can see and do and touch and experience the past.”
