The Tractor Ride will then proceed to the Show Grounds.
A Tractor Pull on the evening of 9/12. A Show Banquet on the evening of 9/13.
Demonstrations, Displays, and Car and Truck Show on 9/12, 13, and 14, with a tractor parade on Saturday and Sunday.
Breakfast on the grounds all 3 days. A 1948 Allis Chalmers "G" has been restored and will be raffled off on 9/14. 
Commemorative Belt Buckles, T-Shirts, and other items will be available.
More info can be obtained by responding to this topic, looking at our Website www. fallharvestdays.com and watching for updates.
SEWAP&CS hosted the GOTO in 2005 and the Heritage of AGCO in 2007.

The Tractor Pull is open to anyone, the Allis Tractor Ride is probably open to others as long as you realize we expect a "sea of orange". We do have another Tractor Ride on Thursday we call the "Root Beer Ride". It goes from the Show Grounds to the local A&W Restaurant and back.

The Tractor Ride is going to start outside of the Building they went through in 2005.
Unfortunately that building is owned by someone else now and we won't have access to it. We are going to try to make it as nostalgic as possible, the City of West Allis is all behind this ride. Thanks for your interest.

Yes, Plow Day is the week before the Show, but the info posted here is basically for people coming from out of town. But thanks for the reminder.

I wish we could have our RC in the ride, but she only makes 8 miles an hour. Smile

I see the plow day site was moved from Racine Grain due to a winter wheat kill.
 
Does anyone know where it is going to be?
 
I would like to attend.

There is a little more exciting news that we need to share regarding the Ride from West Allis. to Union Grove
When we get to the most recent proving grounds in Franklin after a quick lunch Larry Gruenberger will say a few words regaring what was done in different parts of the property. When we leave to go to Union Grove we will drive through the main building on our way to Union Grove.

Thanks to the powers that be over there for posting the change in location to plow day.
 
I will be there with my Simplicity Landlord as I have been for the past 4-5 years.
