What is the Bale Trail?  Participants across Todd County will create bale displays and sculptures using hay bales or loose hay.  All Todd Countians or Community Alliance members can participate!  If you want to create a display, download and print the Bale Trail Entry Form 2017 Submit entry to the Welcome Center in the Historic Todd County Courthouse, 1 Public Square, Elkton, or at Elkton City Hall, 71 Public Square or email to info@toddcountyca.org.

How will we find the bale sculptures? Displays must be set up by September 11, 2017.  A map will be located on this page around September 18th with addresses of each display.  You can visit as many sculptures as you want.  Participants are asked to keep their display up through October 31st, however this will depend on how well the displays stand up to weather.  We will try to keep our map updated at all times.

Most Creative Display. Prize $250!  Soon after the displays are up on September 11th, judges will view each display and will name a “Most Creative Display,” which will also be announced at Elkton’s HarvestFest on Saturday, October 7th.

Fan Favorite Display. Prize of $100!  Be sure to vote for your favorite display by visiting the Explore Todd County Facebook Page and “like” the official picture of your favorite display by Noon on HarvestFest Day, Saturday, October 7th.  Winner will be announced on our Facebook Page.
