(Le Mars) — The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the people organizing or attending the 43rd Annual Grand Meadow Heritage Festival located along county road L36 between Marcus and Correctionville. The Grand Meadow Heritage Festival is like taking a giant step back at least 50 years. It is educational, informative and best of all fun. The festival showcases antique tractors in a tractor pull, an old fashion saw mill, a horse-powered mill processing sorghum, country music, antique engines, and more. The featured exhibit is the former Grand Meadow School that has now been converted to be a museum featuring many of the turn of the century tools, plus a natural history section showcasing Native American artifacts found in the region. Joel Volkert serves as the chairman of the heritage festival.
The Grand Meadow Heritage Festival continues through Sunday, September 8th.
