Iowa State Fair

Pedal Power Pull

August 25, 2021

Young Fairgoers pedaled their way to success in the Pedal Power Pull held Tuesday, August 17, at the 2021 Iowa State Fair.

In the Pedal Power Pull, kids attempt to pedal a mini tractor 40 feet (a “full pull”) pulling a box weighing 80 pounds for 4-year-olds to 260 pounds for 11-year-olds. In the event of a tie or two full pulls, weight is added and a re-pull is held to determine the winner.
