Draft Horse Plowing Demonstration.....................................Donation

Every year, on the first Saturday in May, Lincoln's New Salem State Park in Petersburg holds an antique farming day, which includes preparing the fields for spring planting using draft horses. In 2014, we began using our team of Belgian drafts at this event. We plan to do the same this year. The park requests a donation for entering, but the plowing demo is FREE! Come join us for a great day of fun and history!

Date: May 6 (10am- 4pm)
