13th Annual Pikes Peak Antique Machinery Days

| May/June 1999

For 13 years the Western Museum of Mining and Industry, in association with the Front Range Antique Power Association (FRAPA), has hosted Pikes Peak Antique Machinery Days. The event takes place on the museum's lush 40-acre site, just north of Colorado Springs. The show is one of the largest of its kind in the state of Colorado, and features over 200 antique tractors, gas and steam engines, and related equipment. In addition to the fully operational equipment, exhibitors compete in a tractor pull, and the museum demonstrates its steam shovel, air trammers and stamp mill. The visitation for this three-day event exceeds 2,000 people.

Additional activities include an antique car show, children's activity center, and traditional crafters and demonstrations such as blacksmithing. The museum's blacksmith shop is fully operational and their finished products are sold in the museum gift shop. All of the regular museum tours of working steam engines, gold-panning and hands-on mineral display are included in the admission price for the day.

FRAPA was founded in 1982 to preserve an older way of life and to honor the farmers of days gone by, and the group has grown tremendously throughout the state of Colorado. Pikes Peak Antique Machinery Days are held every year the second weekend of June. This year's show dates are June 11-13, 1999.
