47th Annual Old-Time Harvest Festival--Road Trip!
It's another great weekend to hit the road. Especially if you're the one riding in the passenger seat, with feet out window. With GPS you no longer even have to read the map.
Many great events are happening this weekend, and it's a good bet that there will also be great stops at rural farmer's markets, diners, and roadside attractions along the way. The 47th Annual Old-Time Harvest Gas and Steam Engine Festival in Jordan, Minnesota, makes an easy day trip to pay tribute to those commanding machines that work the fields, and it's only 38 miles from Minneapolis.
The event is hosted by the Scott-Carver Threshers, a group dedicated to preserving the agricultural and industrial history of the area. It includes a Friday chicken dinner, Saturday pork chop dinner, plus a pancake breakfast, flea and craft market, and 1 p.m. parade daily.
