Tug-of-war contests were a popular pastime among early Scottish settlers. Six Embro area farmers won the World Tug-of-War Championship at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893.
This feat is marked by the Memorial Tug-of-War Championship, Canada’s largest Tug-of-War event. Closely matched men’s and women’s teams from Canada and the US provide exciting competition.
Detailed schedule coming soon.
