Rollag, MN is a VERY small town, and relatively unheard of. But each Labor Day, people from across the country travel to this location to celebrate all things . . . STEAM! From tractors to machines, trains to threshers, this is an event not to miss.
You will arrive in a demonstration sort of area where there are many buildings and other events to watch. But do not less this fool you (and make you think, WHERE did MamaBreak send us), the real gem of the festival is a train ride away. Hop aboard the train (my son, who LOVES trains wants to ride over and over again), and transport you and your family back in history-- to a time when things were much simpler.
When you step off the train, you will see a main street with "typical" old shops. Stop in them to find hand made items. Do not forget to stop in the cafeteria for some hand made ice cream!
The kids will love this mini-train that is set up. Rides are free!
For adults, there are many demonstrations and activities . . . so it really is a family event. The entire family likes to enjoy all of the festivities! A perfect outdoor festival for the autumn weather!
