Show will feature antique farm vehicles, tools in action


For a glimpse at old-fashioned farm power, plan to attend the 71st annual show of the Tri-State Antique Engine and Threshers Association, July 25-27 in Bird City.

Attendees will be able to marvel at more than a dozen operating steam engines and gas engines, as well as demonstrations of wheat binding and threshing; a saw mill, tractor pull, kids activities, historic buildings, quilts, a printing press and chuck wagon breakfast round out the activities. Collectors may bring their items to display. Those traveling with an RV may park it on the grounds, which offers a shower house.

For more information, call 785-734-2291, visit www.threshershow.org or e-mail thresherassociation@gmail.com.
