Steele County Extravaganza is Postponed
The Steele County Historical Society presents their 30th annual Historical Extravaganza Saturday, July 16. The new date is the result of the rain on Sunday, July 10. The event takes place on the grounds of the Village of Yesteryear.
Saturday's event offers free admission. It's your opportunity to tour all the buildings on the grounds. You'll also be able to enjoy music and watch demonstrators creating their crafts. One of the demonstrators will show how to press flowers. A Teddy Roosevelt impersonator will be there too. One of the new attractions will be Straight River Sal, who'll share some historical facts. There will be game for adults and kids like the three-legged race and the egg and spoon race.
Once again there will be a collection of vintage tractors on the grounds. Some will be taking apart in the Slow Race and Tractor Skills competition.
With this new date, you'll also be able to enjoy the Gus' Station Car Show which will run 8:30am till 12PM. There will also be a Pancake Breakfast served up from 8:30AM till 10:30AM.
