On the sunny fall weekend of 22 and 23 October, 1988, the Dixie
Fly wheelers hosted their third annual Pioneer Peanut Days. More
than 9,000 spectators came to see the exhibits and demonstrations
located at Landmark Park near Dothan, Alabama. The show was our
best so far and we hope to make our upcoming show even better.

More than one hundred exhibitors participated in the show.
Displays included numerous antique engines, several tractors, and
various other machines. Many of the exhibitors participated in the
demonstrations which included peanut picking, peanut shelling, cane
grinding, clothes washing, hay baling, and corn shelling. The
spectators enjoyed the displays and demonstrations and many of the
spectators and exhibitors strayed into our flea market in search of
hidden treasures.

The Dixie Flywheeler’s third annual Pioneer Peanut Days show
was a success and everyone enjoyed the weekend. For our fourth
annual show we hope to attract more tractor owners by sponsoring an
antique tractor pull. We also hope to improve the show by allowing
exhibitors to park their cars with their displays, by increasing
the size of the spectator parking area and by increasing the size
of our display area. We hope to see all of our old friends and meet
many new friends at our fourth annual Pioneer Peanut Days to be
held on the 21st and 22nd of October 1989.
