There will also be a flea market on the 16th and 17th. A variety of items will be for sale.

A parade will begin at 2 p.m. each day. Antique vehicles and agriculture implements, such as tractors and combines, will roll through the heritage village's ground. Threshing demonstrations will occur after the parade.

Other daily highlights will include live music and a show-and-shine.

An inflatable playground will be brought in for children on August 16. The Midale Pet Rescue group will have a demonstration on one of the days, too.

A 10-and-under children's rodeo will be happening near the heritage village, and the town's downtown museum will be open for tours each day.
