Working with the slogan ‘Show your kids something older than
you!’ Milton Steam-Era enters its 38th year with a rejuvenated
format aimed at attracting young families equally with all other
age groups that have patronized the Labour Day weekend event for
Steam-Era, featuring Allis-Chalmers equipment this year, offers
a lot of action and entertainment throughout the Milton Fairgrounds
all weekend long. From antique tractor pulls and threshing contests
to the twice-daily parades of rolling stock, there’s always
something to see and do. Families are invited to participate in
games and activities every afternoon in front of the grandstand.
Threshing, Baker fans and an antique sawmill are demonstrated
regularly, along with more than 150 full scale and model gas
engines used for everything from washing clothes to grinding grain.
Agricultural history is very much alive on Labour Day Weekend at
Steam-Era ’98, the largest show of its kind in eastern Canada.
