Last day to enjoy 26th Annual Antique Tractor & Engine Show

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Jasper — Today is the last day of the 26th Annual Antique Tractor and Engine Show at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs.

The event began on Thursday, April 3, and will end at 5 p.m. today. Come see a wide variety of antique tractors and farming equipment that reflect 200 years of rural American history.

Show participants will operate working equipment and compete in tractor races. Visitors can watch demonstrations of wheat threshing, shingle milling, corn grinding and unusual engines for everyday purposes. Exhibits include collections of flywheels, hit and miss engines, water pumps, vintage pedal tractors, antique cars and farm equipment.

Competitions for adults include tractor pulls, barrel races and a blind race. Children can participate in pedal-powered tractor races, an old-fashioned game of needle-in-a-haystack or a rooster-crowing contest.

Food concessions include root beer floats, hamburgers and hot dogs, barbecue and kettle corn.

This afternoon there will be an antique tractor parade featuring everything from customized lawn tractors to restored farm machinery.

Admission to the public is $5 per vehicle with up to eight passengers. For more information call 877-635-3655.
