The 5th Annual Hanover Tractor Ride will be held on Saturday, August 22, beginning at 8 a.m.
Tractors and drivers will be assembling at the Hanover Corner (Junction of M-27 and C-65) to begin their ride. They will travel through three counties as they head south through Buena Vista County, then west through Ida County, and back north through Cherokee County.
Tractor riders are invited to stay at Hanover for the day and enjoy the Annual Threshing and Sawmill event.
The oats, which were cut and shocked earlier, will be threshed at the Hanover Village southwest of Alta (junction of C-65 and M-27) beginning at 1 p.m. A large steam engine will power the old-time threshing machine.
This is a great opportunity for young families to witness farm work of yesteryear and for all to reminisce about times past. Food will be available. There is no admission charge.
