For nearly six decades now, the tiny community of Rollag has played host to the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion every Labor Day weekend -- which is why the event has come to be known simply as "Rollag" to its many fans.


The 59th incarnation of the WMSTR is set to begin this Friday, Aug. 31, continuing through Monday, Sept. 3.
