The Chippewa Valley Antique Engine & Model Club hosted the 56th annual Pioneer Days this weekend at Pioneer Park.
Organizer Connie Odegard says Pioneer Days is a way to preserve history and give people a look into a simpler time.
“Well so people know how things used to be. Everything is so modern now and this big fancy equipment. We’re taking us back a few years. It is fun watching the kids and how big their eyes get when they see the steam engines roll by.”
Odegard said there was a large turnout Saturday and Sunday. Next year’s event will feature steam engines with six already committed.
