In the words of Paul de Jonge:

"This event is specifically for one cylinder tractor owners. Everyone is invited to come and/or bring your one cylinder tractor. If you want to participate in the rally you need to be at Broxburn Vegetable Farm on Friday at 4 p.m. Supper is provided to participants. The farm is located 3 miles east of Lethbridge on highway # 3 and ¾ mile South on Broxburn Road. When you see greenhouses and Broxburn café you are at the right place. We start the tractors at 5 p.m. and start driving 3 miles towards Lethbridge, to be in Lethbridge at 6 p.m. From there we wind through the city and make a pit stop at City Hall parking lot between 7 & 8 p.m. Then we drive home through north Lethbridge. If you have a very slow tractor, it is recommended not to drive on Friday evening, but you can always catch a ride."

"On Saturday we do some demonstrations and fun pulling on our participants sled. Because this is for one cylinder tractors only, we like to demonstrate how they start and operate. They are often called the Harleys of tractors, they are noisy, smoke and rock! We try to get a good selection, but you can expect to see: Lanz Bullog, Field Marshall, Ursus, pampa, SFV, HSCS. They never made these types of one cylinder tractors in North America; they are mostly European. Lanz Bulldogs and Field Marshalls were sold in North America."

Tractors must be stock 1960 and older to compete for prizes but we do provide demonstration pulling opportunities for non-stock tractors if requested in advance and all participants are welcome. We have a drive-on digital electronic scale for weighing.

There are activities for all members of the family including horse and wagon rides, children's toy tractor pulling, a kid's play area, silent auction, vendor tent, static displays, various vintage farming demonstrations and a noon hour parade of power. Concessions for food and drinks will be provided along with washroom facilities. Grandstands and a large shelter tent will be on site for spectators. You are welcome to bring your own lawn chairs if you wish. Tours of the historic Bremner Mansion are offered by Strathcona County staff. We ask that visitors do not bring pets onto the site. An admission fee is charged at the gate when you enter.
