A spring farming tradition will be revived May 19 during the 77th-annual International Plowing Match in Lynden.

Once done to prepare for fields for seeding, plowing at this event showcases the strength of majestic draft horses and the skill of the men and women guiding them. Approximately 15-18 two-horse teams are expected.

Admission and parking are free to the informal competition, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the west field of Berthusen Park. Access is from West Badger Road, a half-mile west of Berthusen Road, and restrooms will be on the site.
