The Red River Valley Sugarbeet Museum at Crookston, Minn., drew a nice crowd to its 6th annual
Harvest Festival on a sunny Sunday afternoon in mid-September. Along with numerous stationary exhibits of old-time sugarbeet production and harvesting equipment, the event featured the actual digging of beets with harvesters of an earlier era.
