The past comes to life at Lakehead Harvest Show

The Lakehead Harvest Show returns Friday for its 60th annual show with daily activities from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m Friday through Sunday, Aug. 27-29 at 70 E. St. Louis River Road near Esko.

Old steam engines will roar and splutter, moving tractors or pulleys that power other types of machinery. There will be threshing, shingle-making and rock crushing and a saw mill, all powered by steam.

Lakehead Harvest is a educational nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the past, with a focus on local farming, harvesting, and general farm life throughout the past 100 plus years. It’s an educational event for all ages, and includes train rides for the children, to a petting zoo, diner, steamed corn, tractor pull, saw-milling, wood planing, grain harvesting and threshing.
