For the third straight year the Virginia Shenandoah Valley echoed to the sound of steam engines, gas tractors of all sizes, hit and miss engines, and a variety of related antique farm equipment displayed at the Weyers Cave Fire Department show grounds by the Blue Ridge Steam & Gas Association.

The four day show started on Wednesday with the kiddie pedal tractor pull. It drew fifteen fierce competitors this year, with every puller getting a plaque. Thursday was the friendly antique tractor pull, which had 66 pullers in fifteen classes. Friday and Saturday there was threshing, wood sawing, hay baling, chain saw artist, and 103 models of all sorts running. On Saturday evening was the antique car and tractor parade in downtown Weyers Cave.

What was so delightful was the different exhibits that were shown from the many states that were present, including New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, North and South Carolina, and Florida. There were a total of 175 exhibitors this year.

Our next show will be staged in June of 1991 from the 26th through the 29th. We also extend a cordial invitation to all exhibitors everywhere to come to our show which is a short distance off Interstate 81, Exit 60.
