As part of Sweet Corn Days, the United Methodist Men of Estherville United Methodist Church will host a tractor show and rodeo Saturday afternoon, Aug. 3 in the church parking lot one block south of Central Avenue along Highway 4.
Come and take a look at some great old workhorses on display and enjoy a lighthearted competition of operator skills. Entrance is free for exhibitors and spectators alike.
Drive your tractor in the Saturday morning parade and then bring it to the parking lot by 1 p.m. for the show. The rodeo will start at 2:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the show and for the winners in the rodeo competition. Bring your tractor to show and compete in three rodeo events. Parking spaces may be limited and rodeo entrant numbers will be limited due to time involved.
If you would like to display your tractor or enter the rodeo, contact the church office to ensure your participation by calling (712) 362-4886.
Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, People's Choice and Most Unique. Three rodeo events will include "Coil the Chain", "Roll Out the Barrel" and "Gettin' Hitched." Prizes will be awarded in all three categories.
