The Manitoba Agricultural Museum is celebrating the 65th edition of its signature event – the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede – and to celebrate the occasion, the museum is planning exciting activities, including a tractor parade this weekend in the heart of Winnipeg.
The parade will take place on June 15, starting at 10 a.m., at the Forks and make its way to Portage Avenue, all the way to the Assiniboia Downs grounds. Bystanders will discover with curiosity many exciting examples of agricultural machinery such as a 1945 BF Avery from the Manitoba Agricultural Museum’s collection as well as privately owned John Deere MX4, 1952 Massey Harris and more.
The tractors will then be part of the display at the Red River Exhibition, along with a steam engine tractor and a threshing machine that will demonstrate to visitors historical threshing equipment in operation. The threshing demonstrations will be held every day from June 13-19.
