The Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum will take you back in time with its annual Threshing Bee, taking place Sept. 9 and 10.
The threshing bee will include plowing, threshing, rope making and blacksmithing with vintage equipment.
There will be daily vintage tractor pulls and a highlight each year is the antique tractor and car parade.
“Not only is it our own tractors, but we have other people come in from other areas who put their tractors in the parade and also the antique cars as well,” said Sukanen Ship Museum member Mike Warner.
Along with the festivities, all of the exhibits at the museum will be open to the public. Warner says there will be no shortage of things to see and do.
“The demonstrations are a big thing, the threshing bee and all the demonstrations. There are over 50 exhibits there. It takes a long time to go through it because there’s an awful lot to see. Kids love it out there,” he said.
This is the last big event of the year for the museum and one of their biggest fundraisers.
“It’s a great place to come and visit. I’ve talked to people from Moose Jaw who say ‘I’ve heard about it but I’ve never been down there.’ So, if you haven’t had a chance to come out now is your opportunity. It’s our last event of the year,” Warner said.
Doors open each day at 8 a.m. with a cash-only pancake breakfast and concession.
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children six to 12. Two-day passes are also available for $16.
There are a limited number of unserviced weekend RV parking spots available for an additional $20. You can reserve a spot by calling the museum at 306-693-7315. More information can also be found on the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum website.
