This show runs Sept 15 and 16 at the Canoy Township Park located along Rt 441 about 10 miles north of Columbia,PA. We attended last year and it is a very nice show. We will be there on Saturday and hope to see some of you.

This is, by far, my favorite local show. Mainly because it's not just tractors (did I really just say that?? :confuse: :blush2: .) There's usually some different displays that you don't seem to see at other shows like the antique washing machine setup, the giant feed bag display, the mobile peanut roaster, the Stanley Steamer car, etc. They have a very nice historic re-enactor encampment covering early trapper and indian times up through the F&I War, the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. There are always several women spinning yarn and using looms. Tons for the kids to do including a barrel train, corn "sand" boxes, rope making, games, and hay wagon rides. Also a small consignment sale.
The best part is the woman with the angora rabbit in her lap that sits there all day pulling shed hair off the rabbit and feeding it straight onto the spinning wheel. Rabbit to loom.... :thumbs:

Unfortunately, this year I have to go to a wedding. :mad2:

George and I had a great time at the show. I took a few pics to post. We got to see several of our members and some familiar faces from other shows. George said he would post his pics in the gallery. The last pic is of the nice crowd at the auction.

Thanks for the recommendation and pictures Grand. It was really good seeing you and all the other members there today. Everyone had some nice displays. This was our first time to this show, and let me say, I was very impressed. Very well laid out, nice and flat, and a great number of vendors as far as displays, hit and miss engines, and food stands. Excellent show, and I'm looking forward to participating at this show next year.
