There are several great events each year, the Annual Thresherman's Reunion in mid August is their largest event.

Is the spring steam-up worth a 4 hr round day trip? I'm thinking about going for the day on Sat.


It is a good day Saturday at the Spring Steam Up and I think you would enjoy it.
We make the trip 4 hours each way to attend and will drive down Friday and stay over one night.
If it were 2 hours for us, I'd go for the day trip too.

Can't say as I have never attended, but 4 hour round-trip is about the minimum I have to travel to make it to shows like this and I attend at least a dozen/year, so I would definitely say go for it. 2 hours one way is just a short drive, pack the camera and let us know how it is  ;)
