Friday is an early release day, so why not take the kids to the free 13th Annual Montgomery County Antique Tractor and Engine Show?
Where and When:
Friday morning through 6 p.m.
Saturday beginning at 8 a.m.
4-H Club Grounds, 1921 Rossview Road
All make and model tractors and engines on exhibit. Children are allowed to climb on tractors and “get the feel” of how it was to ride on them. Also great for picture taking.
Children are allowed to hand-grind corn, pump the old cistern water pumps, see how wringer washers worked and wash on a scrub board.
A “pint sized” tractor pull on Saturday begins around 11 a.m. Free balloons and face painting on Friday and Saturday. A bungie jump, balloon pop, enclosed area for bouncing onto soft balls. Concessions and clean public restrooms provided with on-duty attendants.
Donkeys, emus, turkeys and others will be there with their owners. Approximately 45 – 50 craft vendors will display hand-tooled leather products; hand-made wooden bowls, vases, stools, pottery, blow guns; jewelry, beautifully hand made dollhouses and barns; handmade purses, scarves, children’s clothes, ceramic garden ornaments, photo cards, cedar chests, quilts, homemade fries pies, breads, jellies, pickles, bird houses, fall flowers and decorations, fruit teas, Scentsy candles, beauty products, barn quilts (hex signs) for your house, shop, garage or barns. My favorite – lovely hand-made and carved – life-sized old buggies, old wagons, buckboards, steam engine, old still, and a covered wagon.
