Olmstead Place State Park

  1. Olmstead Place State Park hosts the second annual Plowing Bee

    March 28, 9:00 AM - March 29, 4:00 PM @ Olmstead Place State Park

    The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Washington Draft Horse and Mule Association (WDHMA) invite the public to an old-fashioned horse-plowing match and demonstrations of turn-of-the-century farm equipment at Olmstead Place State Park. The main event—the horse-plowing match—will feature draft horses such as Shires, Belgians, Clydesdales and Percherons. In addition, teamsters will be showing their horses and mules in traditional harness with horse-drawn farming equipment, including a variety of hitches, various plow styles, harrows and discs. Some of the farm equipment will be pre-tractor antiques, while others will be modern examples of horse-powered farm equipment. The plowing competitions take place in the morning and in the afternoon on both days. The Ellensburg Moose Lodge will be serving lunch of hamburger, potato salad and drink for about $6. Free wagon rides will also be available. For more information about the Plowing Bee, contact Eric Watness,
