Good old fashioned fun and some mud filled fun took place in Spring Valley, Minn. during the city’s annual Ag Days celebration. Ag Days took place from Tuesday, August 13 to Sunday, August 18, 2013 with a full schedule of events geared toward many varied interests.

A Cutest Pet Contest was held at Spring Valley Senior Living on Tuesday, August 13 with owners proudly showing the pets they love so much. Great theatrical performances were given by the Brave Kidz who performed “Seven Dwarfs” and the Brave Community Theatre gave a wonderful performance of the musical “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

History came to life when the Spring Valley A&W hosted its 17th Annual Cruise Night with the theme “Take a Cruise Back to the 50’s and 60’s” and the history lesson continued at the Spring Valley Historical Museum which was open for visitors to take a stroll back in time.

Additional history could be seen at the Antique Tractor Show which was held in front of Sunshine Foods. Organizers Joe Besdicek, Dennis Hillesland, and Dave Vreeman stated that this year is the 25th year for the Antique Tractor Show and that the 2013 show was dedicated to Glen Van Grevenhof. Van Grevenhof started the Tractor Show and is currently hospitalized. There were many tractors of different sizes and age to view and the organizers were more than happy to share their knowledge of the equipment.

Quilts of every size and color could be admired at the Quilt Show held at the Spring Valley Public Library. Janet Czapiewski, organizer of the Quilt Show, was on hand and proudly showed each and every quilt as if she had made them all. Many members of the quilting club brought in superb quilts that show their talent. Several of the quilts were made by Czapiewski who has made quilts for her nine children, 27 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Janet explained she has three more great-grandchildren on the way so she never seems to run out of projects! One quilt at the show which Janet made was named “Carnival” and is a bold black and white pattern. Janet won first place and honorable mention at the 2013 Fillmore County Fair with her quilting ability.

Golf was on the schedule for many on Friday with a shotgun start four-man best ball golf tournament. The participants played nine holes and enjoyed food and drinks following the tour .....
