Minnesota Fall Spectacular; Fair board to hold its first tractor pull

The East Otter Tail County Fair Board will hold its first ever tractor pull this fall.

The Minnesota Fall Spectacular Modified Truck and Tractor Pull will be held at the fairgrounds Friday and Saturday, Sept. 21-22.

Friday's pull start at 6 p.m., with gates opening at 4 p.m.; Saturday's pull starts at 2 p.m. with gates opening at noon.

There will be eight different classes, with 80 units expected to pull each day, said fair board member Pete Zavadil.

"There are very high quality pieces of equipment coming," he added.

The fair board decided to host a fall tractor pull after various members of pulling groups approached them and asked for a fall event.

Tickets are $15 for adults (14 and older) and $5 for kids (6-13). Five and under can enter for free. All money raised will go to the EOT Fair Board.

In addition, a flea market will be held outside of the gates during the pulls, free for both shoppers and vendors.

Food and beverages will be available on the grounds. Camping will also be available.
