OZARK Heritage Festival

| July/August 1993

Rt 1, Box 1173, Piedmont, Missouri 63957.

The fall of '92 again was a beautiful time for our Ozark Heritage Festival and Craft Show. The colors were beautiful and the weather was perfect. Cool nights and mornings. Perfect for a campfire and swapping of stories. Sunshine all day as the young and the old alike could enjoy all the activities.

Over 9,000 spectators enjoyed crafts, games, rides, contests, the antique car show, and of course the antique engine and antique tractor exhibits and contests. Plaques, buttons, oil and gas were given to all exhibitors, along with a special handmade gift for the wives.

This year we had 120 antique engines, nine antique tractors, a corn sheller and grinder display and several small log saws. The antique tractor guys got to play with their toys this year. We had several contests for the antique tractors.

An open air square dance was enjoyed by all on Friday evening. At 6:00 A.M. Saturday morning we were all awakened by cannon fire from the beginning of the Civil War reenactment. We have a lot of Civil War history in the Piedmont area and surrounding area.

At 12:00 noon Saturday all antique engine and antique tractor exhibitors were treated to homemade beef stew, corn bread, cake and beverages. Of course, our chief chef, Jim Crowley, cooked chili over an open fire in a large iron kettle. By 5:00 P.M. everyone was lining up ready to eat again. Chili along with all the accompaniments, homemade blackberry cobbler, homemade cheesecake, coffee, iced tea and lemonade was enjoyed by all.
