Taking you back to harvests of the past, the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum’s Threshing Bee is returning on Sept. 10 and 11.
Doors open daily at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. and concessions will be open. Visitors are reminded that breakfast and concessions are cash only.
There will be plowing, threshing, rope making and blacksmithing demonstrations on both days. New to this year’s Threshing Bee will also be a buzz saw demonstration.
Vintage tractor pulls will be taking place throughout both days.
“We have a couple of special presentations. On Saturday, we have one at 12:45 p.m., but on Sunday at 12:45 p.m. we have another building grand opening,” said Frank Lloyd with the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum.
This year the museum has also partnered with Tourism Moose Jaw to offer a shuttle to and from the events.
“Something new that we've added this year is the trolley will be leaving Mac the Moose at 10:30 and running on the hour until 4:30 out to the museum to transport people,” Lloyd explained.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 6 to 10 and $16 for a two-day pass. There are limited unserviced RV parking spaces for $20 for the weekend plus daily admission. You can call 306-693-7315 to reserve your spot.
Due to construction on Highway 2 due to a water main break, those planning to attend should take Highway 363 through 15 Wing.
