The Twenty Second Rice County Steam and Gas Engine Club Swap Meet and Flea Market will be this weekend on their showgrounds located on Highway 3 just south of Northfield. The gates will be open Saturday May 29, 2021 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday May 30, 2021 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. You can buy, sell or trade just about anything! The consignment auction will be Saturday morning at 9:00 am and the tractor pull Sunday morning at 9:00 am.

Last year of course the Rice County Steam and Gas Engine Club Swap Meet and Flea Market was canceled as was every other event because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It sure is another good sign that things will be more normal this summer! Another good sign is the forecast looks pretty nice for this weekend too although it may be a little cool. If you would like more information on the Swap Meet and Flea Market this weekend or the Military Days the following weekend go to their website: ricecountysteamand gas.com.
