The Tennessee Valley Pioneer Power Association's 2nd Annual Pioneer Power Days were held September 9th and 10th, 1989 in Eagleville, Tennessee. Eagleville is located 30 miles south of Nashville in the heart of middle Tennessee.

The weather was nice and both days were packed with activities. There were 225 antique tractors and 125 gas engines on display and that's not bad considering we still use mules occasionally in the South!

Parades were held both days along with antique tractor pulls. Saturday was especially busy with a slow race, hand cranking contest, and a children's pedal tractor race and pull which was a real crowd pleaser.

Saturday night a square dancing demonstration was enjoyed by all. The ladies' home demonstration club showed off their skills in butter churning, quilt making, and other talents relating to our Pioneer Days.

An outdoor church service was held Sunday morning for the campers and community members who wished to attend.
