This is the second episode in our series of Touring Plans. Today's plan is for Midwest Old Threshers. This event has been held every year since 1950 and is probably only second to the Iowa State Fair in size and scope of an Iowa event. It's held every year on the Threshers Grounds in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. Different facets include antique cars, horses, a wild west town complete with cowboys and a real train, electric trolleys, an 1840s log cabin village, a parade of power, drive a tractor, ride a steam carosel country music stars, and of course, Threshing machines. There is even more than that so check out our touring plan so you too can get the most of your day at Old Threshers.
