Antique show begins Thursday

ELNORA — It’s that time again. Time to journey back and see how things were done in the old days. It’s time for the 24th annual White River Valley Antique Show.

The fairgrounds in Elnora will be full of antique engines, tractors, horse powered farm machines and good food beginning Thursday and running through Sunday.

Thursday will begin with the sixth annual Daviess County Antique Tractor Cruise, which will wind its way through the county ending at the fairgrounds. The wagon train will continue Thursday as the horsedrawn buggies and wagons also make their way to the fairgrounds.

A horse pull at the arena will begin at 6:30 p.m., and admission is $5 with those under 12 free. Entertainment will be gospel music at the shelter house at 7 p.m.

Friday is area school day, with hundreds of classrooms bringing the learning to the fairgrounds to expose the students to the past of their grandparents and great-grandparents. Demonstrations will go on throughout the day as well as Saturday and Sunday. They include a working sawmill, threshing, bailing, a smokehouse, field demonstrations, water powered gristmill machine shop, baker fans, wood shop and much, much more.

The one room schoolhouse will also be in operation from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and toys will be displayed in the community building all three days. At 1 p.m. Friday, the Delaware County Tractor Square Dancers will be in the arena. They will also perform twice on Saturday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Gospel music will be in the shelter house at 6:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. The tractor pull will also be at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the arena.

For those that like tractors, the 2 p.m. antique tractor parade in the arena Saturday is a must see and for the younger set. There’s the kid’s pedal tractor pull at 2 p.m. Saturday. That will be followed by tractor games at 3 p.m. and garden tractor pullers in the arena at 5 p.m.

Also included this year is a consignment sale, antique truck show, flea market and plenty of free parking.

Daily admission is $4, and children 12 and under get in free.
