John Deere Pedal Tractor Pull  
June  26    12:00 pm start registering.  Times will vary based on number in each age group.

Pedal Tractor Pulling is fun to watch, kids of all ages love it and great for the family.A huge thank you goes out to the volunteers from Gooseneck Implement for hosting this popular fair event.  Pedalers ages 5 through adult are invited to participate for prizes.    Come out and compete or cheer on your favorite pedaller as they show their pedal strength and driving skills!  This will take place at the south entrance to the fairgrounds before the start of the Demolition Derby.  Everyone gets a prize and the top pullers in each division receive a trophy.


All those that participate will be entered in a drawing for a Child's Pedal Tractor donated by Dave Bednarz.  


HOW DOES IT WORK?  Each child sits on a pedal tractor and drags a weighted sled as far as they can go. As the sled is dragged it creates friction, making it harder to pull. So the farther you go, the harder it gets!

Coloring Display

Return the back page of the booklet to the Mighty Thomas Carnival ticket booth.  Pages will be put on display at the fairgrounds.
