Live entertainment will be one of the many offerings at this year's 50th annual Cowlitz Prairie Grange Threshing and Gas Show.
The 50th annual Cowlitz Prairie Grange Threshing and Gas Show will be featured this Saturday and Sunday and is expected to bring thousands of individuals from across the country.
Featuring tractor pulls, live music, a car show, antique vendors and threshing every hour on the hour, this 50th year is expected to see many special presentations and events commemorating the golden anniversary of this community event.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob will be available all weekend among the 110 vendors, who will also deal in antiques and crafts. Special dinners and breakfasts have been scheduled, as well.
For those not in-the-know, Threshing is the process of separating kernels of wheat, or other grain, from the stalk and husk, called chaff. This can be accomplished by mechanical means or the ancient technique of beating the crop on a threshing floor, designed to collect the finished grain.
The Threshing Bee will be located on Buckley Road, just east Jackson Hwy. Parking is free, while admission is $5 per person, though children 12 and under may enter for free. Around 8,000 people are expected to show up, so be sure to prepare for a day full of fun and excitement. For more information, contact Louis Rohrig at (360) 864-2744.
Tractors large and small will also be featured, including more than 150 expected to take part in the tractor pull.
