A wonderful time at Old Thresher's Reunion

We spent two and a half days camping out at the Iowa Old Thresher's Reunion, and I didn't want to leave! You meet the nicest people at a tractor show. If you haven't been to Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, on Labor Day weekend, you are missing out. They have more steam engines than I have ever seen in one spot. Oh, and a country music show every night, if you are so inclined: Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chestnut, and Joe Diffie sang their hearts out! And the flea markets and antique stalls! I thought I had died and gone to heaven. (Not to mention the world's largest exhibit of Crosleys). And the best part is, I have a day to relax at home before I go back to work. Have a God-blessed Labor Day, everybody.

I went there way back in the 70s. Had a great time. Liked the old town, singing in the church, doing lessons in the school. The stores hadnt really started to open yet, and mostly they had displays in the windows. But you could set down on the portches of the stores and watch the old cars go by now and again. They had jsut made a trolly track to go into the parkinglot, and so, you could park and walk to the trolly, take it, onto town. ButIm to far away to go now. If I can advise you, go to Dubuque Iowa, to the Collage there. They have a 1870s town, a operating 1850sn farm, and a 1900 farm. I loved it more as there were fewer people there, and it all was in operation, AND CLOSER TO HOME. CHECK (HISTORIC FARMS) and itall come up

We live directly across the street from Gate 7 at Old Thresher's in a red a-frame house. We park vehicles during the day and campers overnight. We welcome the visitors. It is just a walk across the street and you are on the grounds. If you need a place to camp, please contact us and a spot will be saved for you.
