Power from the Past Enters Second Day

The Power from the Past Show goes into its second day today.

“It’s dedication, it’s interest and people just like this kind of stuff,” said Bob Smith about the Power from the Past show. “People just like really like the old stuff. They’re interested in saving it and showing it. It takes a lot of organization to put on one of these shows and a lot of work.”

Power from the Past is one of the biggest shows in the Midwest, with people coming to visit from coast to coast. Smith said all types of equipment are featured in this year’s show.

“Besides tractors and old gas engines, lawn and garden tractors have become a big thing in the past 10 or 15 years. We see more and more of them all the time. I believe it’s the generation that can relate to them and sometimes they are more affordable than the old hit and miss engines. You see a lot more of them all of the time.”

Don’t miss Levi Riggs, Nashville Country Recording Artist, who will be the featured entertainment tonight and he will perform at 7:00 p.m. ET.

While at the Power Show, visit the many flea market booths, working displays, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, and view the quilts in the quilt show. Several food vendors will on hand to offer a variety of dinner specials.

John Deere tractors, engines, machinery and tools are being featured this year.
