The annual Ag Days celebration took place August 12-17, 2014 in Spring Valley, Minn. with activities taking place from Tuesday through Sunday all around town.

Spring Valley Senior Living’s Cutest Pet Contest got the ball rolling on Tuesday and theatre took center stage on Wednesday with the Brave Kidz Theatre play followed by the Brave Community Theatre’s production of “Mame” at the community center. The plays were performed both Saturday and Sunday giving everyone a chance to see the local talent in action.

An 18th Annual Cruise Night was held at the A&W complete with prizes on Thursday and the fun continued at Valley Lanes with music by Trouble Shooter to end the night.

Sunshine Foods parking lot was filled with the Antique Tractor Show for the weekend giving farmers and city folk the opportunity to see how things were done in the past. While reminiscing about the past another great stop was the Spring Valley Historical Society Museum which was open during Ag Days for visitor’s to take a step back in time.

Additional events on Friday were golf, kickball, and softball tournaments, Garden Club Flower Show, an ice cream social, and an antique tractor drive.

South Park was a busy place the entire weekend with many activities taking place such as three inflatable bouncy houses which children always enjoy, a sand pile, playground equipment, and many types of food and treats.

The Knights of Columbus were also busy in South Park as grill master Jerry Wolf cooked up the meat while Paul Klockeman, John Glady, and Mike Blanchard served hungry patrons.

Friday evening brought an emotional VFW flag retirement and candlelight vigil for POW/MIA’s at the Veteran’s Memorial.

Johnny Ringo’s had a DJ for entertainment Friday night and Fireworks ended the evening activities as people enjoyed the sights and sounds from their porches, lawn chairs, and blankets.

More competition was in store on Saturday with a fishing contest, a 6K run, sand volleyball tournament, bean bag tournament, and the Little Husker 1K which included hundreds of kids from ages 2 -12 who all received free t-shirts and a medal for completing the course.

Kids of all ages enjoyed watching Magic by Not Your Average Joe as he called for some volunteers from the crowd. Jackson Pettes, 11, assisted the magician and said, “It was fun because the magic .....
