Working with the slogan 'Show your kids something older than you!' Milton Steam-Era enters its 38th year with a rejuvenated format aimed at attracting young families equally with all other age groups that have patronized the Labour Day weekend event for years.
Steam-Era, featuring Allis-Chalmers equipment this year, offers a lot of action and entertainment throughout the Milton Fairgrounds all weekend long. From antique tractor pulls and threshing contests to the twice-daily parades of rolling stock, there's always something to see and do. Families are invited to participate in games and activities every afternoon in front of the grandstand. Threshing, Baker fans and an antique sawmill are demonstrated regularly, along with more than 150 full scale and model gas engines used for everything from washing clothes to grinding grain. Agricultural history is very much alive on Labour Day Weekend at Steam-Era '98, the largest show of its kind in eastern Canada. For information, call Brad Clements at (905)-878-6576.
