Step up for some rural country fun on the farm. The Valmy Thresheree is far more fun than the name suggests even for the non-farmers among us. Catch a chainsaw competition, antique tractor pulls, a barn dance, and of course – the famously hilarious mud pig wrestling! For the farm aficionados, the thresheree is a look at how we used to get the job done as well. Friday through Sunday.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair to watch “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” with a view of the canal in Sturgeon Bay. Free. 8:30 pm.
