In the antique car division first place went to William and Marie Marie Melody, and their 1930 Model A Ford sports coupe. Second place was awarded to Duke Energy, and their 1926 white 3 ½ ton staking truck.
In the tractor category Kasier Farm took first with a 1957 John Deere 620.
The Chairman's Choice was give to Heroes on the Water-Indiana Chapter and in the equestrian division first place was given to Bill Taylor and second to Cheyenne Kendall.
