LAGRANGE – From tiny cars to powerful steam engines and living history, there's a lot going on in LaGrange this week.
On Wednesday afternoon hundreds of Mini Cooper automobiles will roll through LaGrange County on U-S 20 as the “MINI-TAKES-THE-STATES” rally makes its way from Chicago to Cleveland.
The rally began in San Francisco July 26th and will end in Boston this Sunday. Along the way close to one thousand Mini owners will take part in all or part of the rally.
The annual Steam & Gas Show begins Thursday at the LaGrange County 4-H Fairgrounds. The four day show features steam engines, antique tractors and farm machinery and a flea market. There is an admission charge. This year's featured tractor is the Ferguson.
On Saturday the Civil War comes to life in downtown LaGrange, where two regiments will camp out on the courthouse lawn. Presentations and performances of a historical nature are planned and there is no admission charge.
