Members of S.C.R.A.P. – Sandusky County Restorers of Antique Power – are at
once both collectors and historians of sorts.
The members lovingly maintain and restore machines from yesteryear so that they can demonstrate the importance of that power for what it meant at that time.
The restorers group, along with co-sponsor Sandusky County Park District and host Buckeye Allis Club, Inc., will hold the 21st annual Antique Tractor & Engine Show Sept. 5-7 at White Star Park, located a mile south of Gibsonburg. (From Gibsonburg, take S.R. 300 south to east on U.S. 6 and then north on Twp. Road 60 to the park entrance.)
Admission is $3 per day with free parking and a lot shuttle to bring guest to the show, where they will see antique tractors, cars and trucks, an antique tractor pull, adult and kid pedal tractor pulls, wheat threshing, a kiddie railroad ride, horse plowing, parades of equipment, stationary baling, corn shredding, catsup making, quilting, blacksmithing, rope-making and other demonstrations.
In addition, there will be food (including kettle corn), country music (including a banjo and fiddle contest), quilting, a flea market, crafts and more.
A Sunday church service will be offered at 9 a.m. Sept. 6 and a consignment auction beginning at 9:57 a.m. Monday, Sept. 7 (Labor Day). Consignments will be accepted through Saturday, Sept. 5. Call 419-355-7117 during auction weekend.
