I Went the Antique Engine Show over the July 4th Weekend. Took a bunch photos and same videos, tried capture the over all feel of what it's like to be there. If any of you have never gone or live to far away to get to it, I did my best to bring it to you. This isn't the biggest tractor show out there but for the area it a big one. I was there for most tof he peek hours Saturday. Aside from the tractors, there is selling. You can find some seriously good deals on project tractors. If I hadn't made my self take only $100, I would have bought so much stuff! But there where seriously a ton of tractors to look at and buy. It would of taken the whole weekend to get a full sense of seeing everything there was to see. It's an excellent Family event, kids love it! Weather wasn't to bad either.

Went there too. Must've walked past each other by the looks of the pics.

My parents and I were on the far end of the white bldg next to the tractor with the Half Tracks on it.

Yeah, it's pretty loud. They run it a few times a day at certain times and blow a whistle, which is also pretty loud.

I'll have to get out to that next year, my niece lives in Conneaut and her fiance is into tractors. They have come up to the Alexander show a couple times, I guess I can get to one in their area, LOL. Do you know if there is camping?

Some people pitch tents and drive campers, they sleep were the sell or display there tractors.. But for spectators there isn't any camping there but there are camp grounds not far. There is one called Jeffco Lakes, which isn't more a few miles away. If you have some stuff to sell or show you can camp out. It's a good day or two of stuff to do. Just walk around and talk to a ton of people. You can find some seriously good deals on things.
