Wisner has gone extreme in truck and tractor pulling, having hosted an annual pull since 2004. That pull has been voted “Pull of the Year” each year by the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association.
The event is titled “Thunder by the River,” which is fitting since the event is held at Wisner River Park and brings a thunderous array of pulling action.
A local group of volunteers head up the Thunder by the River Executive Committee which does all the legwork to organize such a tremendous event for the City of Wisner.
The event is traditionally held the third weekend in August and has been labeled as the “Bowling Green of the West” by many associated with the pulling association.
