It's too early for harvest season, but that didn't stop anyone from threshing in Lansford today.
The 43rd annual threshing show and tractor trek kicked off in Lansford today.
The two-day event takes visitors back to a time when community members harvested together using a threshing machine.
During the event, visitors have a chance to hook their tractors up to the machine and try it out for themselves.
Other attractions include a blacksmith shop, an old school-house, and reenactments of homestead life such as churning butter and making homemade doughnuts.
The president of the Lansford Threshers and Historical Association, Roger Sauer, says some visitors travel from great distances to see the machines in action.
(Roger Sauer, President, Lansford Threshers and Historical Association)"We get a lot of people from all over the country if they happen to be traveling through. I'll get calls from people from Canada that come downtown the show--even as far as Washington state if they happen to be coming to North Dakota. We're in the directories and things like that so we get a lot of calls."
The event continues with more activities tomorrow including historical speaker Steve Stark, a parade and threshing of wheat and corn.
