Tri-County Antique Farm Machinery Tractor Show Saturday

Last updated on Thursday, April 25, 2013

(MITCHELL) - The Tri-County Antique Farm Machinery Association will host its 13th annual Antique Tractor & Gas Engine Show Saturday at Spring Mill State Park.

Antique farm tractors, trucks and gas engines dating back as early as the 1930s will be on display near the Sycamore shelter house, headquarters for the event.

Members from the Tri-County Antique Farm Machinery Association will be on hand to talk about their hobby and the history of the machines. The stories can be as colorful as the tractors and engines themselves.

Visitors can arrive from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m and a tractor parade is scheduled for 3 p.m. Antique tractors, trucks, small engines and farm machinery can register after 8 a.m. to join the parade.

Visitors to the show will be able to step back in time and imagine what it was like in the days when the tractor was the most important piece of machinery on the family farm. They also will be able to realize how much easier life was during this era, compared to the thriving days of the "Spring Mill Village," when horses, oxen and mules were the means of crop production.

There is no fee for the show, but the usual $5 gate fee per vehicle for in-state residents, and a $7 per vehicle gate fee for out-of-state motorists applies.

For more information about the show, contact Brian Ferguson at 276-1588 or Randy Tummers, 849-5009.
