On the sunny fall weekend of 22 and 23 October, 1988, the Dixie Fly wheelers hosted their third annual Pioneer Peanut Days. More than 9,000 spectators came to see the exhibits and demonstrations located at Landmark Park near Dothan, Alabama. The show was our best so far and we hope to make our upcoming show even better.

More than one hundred exhibitors participated in the show. Displays included numerous antique engines, several tractors, and various other machines. Many of the exhibitors participated in the demonstrations which included peanut picking, peanut shelling, cane grinding, clothes washing, hay baling, and corn shelling. The spectators enjoyed the displays and demonstrations and many of the spectators and exhibitors strayed into our flea market in search of hidden treasures.

The Dixie Flywheeler's third annual Pioneer Peanut Days show was a success and everyone enjoyed the weekend. For our fourth annual show we hope to attract more tractor owners by sponsoring an antique tractor pull. We also hope to improve the show by allowing exhibitors to park their cars with their displays, by increasing the size of the spectator parking area and by increasing the size of our display area. We hope to see all of our old friends and meet many new friends at our fourth annual Pioneer Peanut Days to be held on the 21st and 22nd of October 1989.
