Sunday at 1:30 p.m., the kiddies' tractor pull was the crowd pleaser, as the youngsters pedal pulled the small weight sled toward the finish line.

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.
