“If you build it they will come.”
The iconic baseball field is one of the most popular scenes of the Field of Dreams sports movie based on an Iowa farmstead. Last year the nostalgia of Field of Dreams was heightened when Major League Baseball decided to host a game there in Dyersville. This year they are doing it again with the Chicago Cubs playing there in August.
Two weeks ahead of the game, DeKalb County Farm Bureau will be taking a day trip to the Field of Dreams site on Thursday, July 28. The trip is open to Farm Bureau members and their families.
The tour features two hours at Field of Dreams to enjoy the baseball field, take the farmhouse tour and have a picnic lunch. Then the group will travel downtown Dyersville to see the Field of Dreams If You Build It exhibit and visit the National Farm Toy Museum.
The cost of the day trip is $60 per person, with a portion of the trip expenses underwritten by Farm Bureau. Cost includes: roundtrip motor coach transportation, picnic style lunch, Field of Dreams farmhouse tour, If You Build It exhibit, and National Farm Toy Museum.
The motor coach will depart from Farm Bureau at 8 a.m. and returns by 8 p.m.
Registration for this trip opens on May 2 at the Farm Bureau office.
