The Pioneer Threshermans Association at Triangle is celebrating Canada Day by taking a step back in time.
After breakfast from 8-10 a.m., an Ecumenical Church Service occurs from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
A variety of events combining old-fashioned fun and current activities begin at 10:30 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m.
Demonstrations of how things were made long ago include a flour mill, threshing, blacksmithing and rope making. A sawmill demonstration is also included.
There will be plenty of activities for children and youth. A potato sack race, apple bobbing, doughnut eating contest, nail dropping, egg and spoon race, and jeans hanging will complete the fun. A jumping castle will be on site for the smaller children.
The always popular antique tractor parade occurs at noon where viewers can see machines of the past along the route.

And don’t forget the lumberjack competition beginning at 4 p.m.!
Admission is free to all events this year except for breakfast [$5] and supper [$15 for adults, $10 for youth aged 6-12, under six years for free].
