The Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association's annual show at its permanent showground in Temple, Texas, was a fun-filled weekend with every aspect of early day life well represented. Small and large engines were displayed with items they had been designed to power. Tractors were displayed, paraded and used in the antique tractor pull. Many demonstrations were performed including corn shelling, plowing, threshing, quilting, and hay baling, to name a few.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Saturday to dedicate the new concession facility which many volunteers had helped to construct. It is a fine addition to our showgrounds. It is an octagon shaped structure with a weathervane attached to the tall center. Tourists traveling through the center of Texas have a good view of it and our showground from nearby Interstate Highway 35.
Members, exhibitors and spectators were present from all corners of the state and from other states. We thank all who participated. We welcome newcomers and we hope to see you all in 1994!
