    July 13: Seneca Ridge and Valley Rally. Seneca invites you to attend the 20th annual Ridge and Valley Rally, and to celebrate with them the qualities in which farming communities specialize – small-town hospitality and a rural flavor of fun. Situated on a picturesque ridge between the Mississippi and Kicka- poo River valleys, Seneca boasts a splendid view of the surrounding Driftless landscape, and a memora- ble day of food, games, and music. The day starts with a 5K/ 10K walk-run at 7:30am, parade at 11am and ends with a dance at 8pm; enough exercise to burn off that smoked pork chop dinner. In between you’ll find a pie auction, antique tractor pull – be sure to cheer for your favorite – and some fun games to test your own athletic skills.
