The annual tractor ride, sponsored by the Forest City Chamber of Commerce and Heritage Park of North Iowa, is an experience of traveling through North Iowa’s country roads and small towns at a speed that allows you to really see the countryside. All you need is a tractor from the 1960s or older that is capable of a 50 to 70 mile drive, usually on asphalt roads. (The trip is divided into two groups, a fast group and a slow group depending on the speed of your tractor.)
Along the ride, you’ll find plenty of food, coffee, and visits with neighbors and new friends. Participants are young and old, men and women, so join the fun! The tractor ride starts at Heritage Park around 7:00 AM with coffee and rolls and a short talk on the route and safety. The groups travel together and enjoy breaks for coffee, rest stops, and a noon meal. The trip ends at Heritage Park around 3:00 PM for more treats! There is a very modest fee to cover expenses, please contact the Forest City Chamber of Commerce at 641-585-2092 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
