The province’s political leaders will be kicking up dirt Tuesday for the International Plowing Match in Minto.
Among the large number of MPPs set to attend the multi-day agricultural event are Premier Kathleen Wynne, Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown, and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.
Two days of sitting in the legislature were cancelled to ensure all members could attend.
The festivities begin Tuesday with a parade, followed by speeches from the party leaders which are expected to include plenty of praise for the province’s agricultural sector.
After the leaders’ speeches, it’s traditional that they take turns on tractors plowing furrows.
Live demonstrations in the antiques area include sawmilling, threshing, drag sawing and oat rolling.
The International Plowing Match wraps up on Saturday.
