Smithland Tourist Traps
Smithland has no tourist traps. This not a regular tourist town. We have events from time to time and there are historical tours on occasion but for the most part, we're just an old sleepy river town.
Smithland Sports & Outdoors
Mini-tractor pulling has made a bigger splash than I thought it would. I don't know how wide spread the sport is, but it has really grown in Livingston County. A group of interested overgrown kids (a.k.a. adults) wanted to have some fun and started taking old lawn tractors and modifying them to pull a weighted sled. The competition grew and instead of using a vacant lot for the pulls, the old baseball field was converted into a site for weekly pulling events. People from all over the area started building tractors for the mini-pull and things just took off. Contestants come from all age groups! It's great fun to watch the little kids pull.
Equipment: Bring your own seating and snacks. A concession stand will most likely be open but be prepared. Don't forget the insect repellant, sunglasses, hat or cap. You may also want earplugs or muffs.
This is a dry county! No alcohol allowed! (Okay, I said it; now use your best judgment ;))Related to:
