The Ozark Heritage Fall Festival was again held the third
weekend of October in Piedmont, Missouri. The festival was enjoyed
by people of all ages, and included games for the children. We had
over 100 crafters and flea marketers.

There was a parade on Saturday which lasted for over 1? hours.
The festivities included an antique car show, antique engine and
tractor show, sorgum making, long knife exhibition, Boy Scout
exhibition, along with all the craft persons and flea market
vendors.

Saturday’s attandance was over 5,000. This year we had 93
antique engines, 9 antique tractors and an array of different
antique farm equipment. We also had primitive camping for the
antique engine and antique tractor exhibitors.

This year we had a chili dinner for the antique engine and
tractor exhibitors. The chili was cooked in an antique cast iron
kettle outside over an open fire. This made an excellent spot to
swap stories and get a smell of the chili cooking. The dinner was a
big success and everyone was surprised with homemade blackberry
cobbler for dessert. Sorry none left for a midnight snack!

Plaques and buttons were given to all antique engine and tractor
exhibitors. Gas for the tractors and engines was donated by the
Country Store Phillips 66 Station.

Piedmont, Missouri is in the Ozarks; the fall colors of the
leaves peak for our show, and the temperature is perfect. We had
exhibitors from nine states this year. Come and join us next year
and see what surprises we have for you. Everyone is welcome. Thanks
to all for another great show and a very good time.
