More engines, more tractors, more displays, more spectators and more fun is in store for you at the Third Annual SCRAP Show.

The Sandusky County Restorers of Antique Power (SCRAP) is planning its third annual Antique Tractor and Engine Show, Labor Day Weekend, August 31 through Sept 2. It will be held again this year at the beautiful White Star Park, one mile south of Gibsonburg, Ohio on State Route 300.

The 1990 show included 140 tractors, over 100 gas engines, one steam engine, many antique trucks and cars, and seventeen teams of horses and ponies that plowed everyday. The usual show activities of shingle making, wheat threshing, baling, parades, Baker fan, slow race and start up race kept exhibitors busy and spectators happy.

Thirteen fiddlers and five banjo pickers captivated the audience Sunday afternoon with their favorite tunes as they competed for top prize. The Toy Show, was also held on Sunday, and drew dealers from three states.

The consignment auction held on Labor Day gave opportunity to change ownership of items we felt were not needed, for those we just could not live without. The aroma of kettles and kettles of caramel popcorn, ketchup, and apple butter cooking, filled the air each day.
