You can take a step back into the past tomorrow as Sheppard Family Park hosts its annual Threshing Day.

David King with the Sheppard Family Park Society says they've already been hard at work.

"About two weeks ago we cut the crop into the bundles and then stand them up into stooks and then just last weekend before the rain we loaded all the stooks up onto a couple of wagons and put them away so that our day is dry and successful," he says. "We leave a little strip so we can demonstrate the binder operation again and of course the threshing." 

There are blacksmith demonstrations, a horse shoeing and the Wheat to Buns display showing how the wheat goes from the field and becomes a loaf of bread, and, as always, the popular pies.

It goes from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Sheppard Family Park on 5 Street and 12 Avenue S.E.
