Hay Days Grass Drags – Forest Lake, Minnesota

Grass Drag.jpgHay Days Grass Drags – Forest Lake, Minnesota

If you come from the snow country you all know about snowmobiling on the frozen white stuff that blesses the area every year, sometimes for months on end and other times the desire for more snow is real!  Well, Hay Days Grass Drags doesn’t wait for the snow, they have the drag races on the grass!

The races are always held the first weekend following Labor Day.  The races are in Forest Lake, Minnesota which is north of the Twin Cities. 

Forest Lake is a community of a little over 14,000 people (2006 numbers) with a desire to welcome those that come to Hay Days Grass Drags in the true Minnesota fasion.  You will find hospitality, good food, "real people" and lots of fun at the event.

The admission to the races is $15 each day or $25 for a two day pass.  Children under the age of 12 are free.

You can buy your tickets at the gate so don’t worry about getting them ahead of time, no need!  The gates open at 7 AM.  The races start at 9 AM.

Unfortunately there is no camping allowed at the stie, but there are alternative grounds to camp at and there are hotels for your comfort.  When you buy a 2 day wrist band at the Swap Gate and you pay for your Truck/Trailer entrance fee, you will get a windshield sticker (or other marking) which will get you and your vehicle in on Saturday as well as Sunday. (providing you have the sticker and your 2 Day wristbands) There is no extra charge for the second day of swap.

If you come to the Swap Gate Saturday and only buy a 1 Day Wrist Band, you have to pay for your Truck/ Trailer entrance, and will Not get a windshield sticker.(or other marking)

When you come back on Sunday, you buy a 1 Day Wrist Band and have to pay for your Truck/ Trailer again, as you did on Saturday. The key is the 2 Day wrist band. This wrist band will get your vehicle in on Sunday for no additional fee.

There is no Camping allowed on site…but on ON SITE SECURITY IS ALLOWED, If you stay to watch your product or merchandise, that is "ok" providing you stay in your vehicle, on your site. No grills & no walking around Ect. or you will be asked to leave.
