Bikers from South Dakota, Wyoming, Iowa, Illinois, the Twin Cities, and from the local surrounding area attended Preston’s “Taste of the Trail” event on September 21. Guests sampled food items at the Preston Trailhead Park donated by Preston Apple & Berry Farm, the Sweet Stop & Sandwich Shoppe, Preston Foods, two local Amish vendors, Pine Tree Orchard, and Preston Tourism.

“Taste of the Trail” featured several local Preston food products for guests to try, but it also included non-edible samplings, giving visitors a “taste” of what Preston has to offer and a “flavor” for what defines our community.

Guests were treated to live music, two snake & raptor programs given by Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center staff, balloon making & face painting by Nanny Giggles & Uncle Chuckles, and interpretive trail riding information was presented to bikers by a Forestville State Park Naturalist. The National Trout Center invited visitors to participate in a fly casting game for small prizes. Darwin Smith offered tractor/wagon rides, giving guests a tour of the city and Preston Equipment brought a large tractor to the Trailhead, symbolizing the importance of agriculture in our community. Rocky Top Acres was also on site displaying two live alpacas and products made from alpaca fiber.
