There were 125 engines, 45 model engines, 80 tractors, and a half dozen toy displays. The bake sale was a success; people volunteered to help wherever the need arose. So what more can we say, except thank you to all helpers, exhibitors, and visitors.

Forty vendors were set up in the flea market area, with most of them having our hobby related items for sale. The slowest running stationary engine contest was held both Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. Shortly after that, tractor parades were held, with teeter-totter balancing, blindfolded driving, slow race and pull sled activities on both days.

Food was available at the Community Center Stands, starting with breakfast at 7:30 a.m.

For the 1991 show (to be held June 1 and 2), more fun and games are in the making, as we always try to enhance our show. In five years we have grown, finishing with 420 members in good standing for 1990. Our annual banquet October 20, 1990 saw 255 members and their families enjoying a good meal and entertainment at the Kempton Fire Company.
