Heartland residents were celebrating Douds, Iowa on Saturday.

The 70th annual Field Day event started back in 1949.

It’s a way for the community to get together and celebrate the town. Field Day Committee Member Jim Pedrick says the name of the event is nothing but a saying.

“It’s just kind of a saying. You know, something big happens, or when someone’s really successful they say ‘well he’s really had a field day today,’ so, you know, it’s a fun title,” said Pedrick.

The day-long event featured tractor pulls and kid’s games.
