In September, I attended the Rice County Steam and Gas Engine Show.  It was a fun day.  Many different era’s in agriculture were shown.  Horse power, steam power, gas power we’re all being shown off.

Civil Defense Siren

Civil Defense Siren – Some photographers will do anything to get the shot!

There was a lot to see.  The sheer amount of tractors in the parade was impressive and it’s not every day you get to see a mobil civil defense siren; kind of the reverse philosophy of the ice cream truck I guess.

If you tired of the tractors, there was a flea market onsite that seemed to have something for everyone whether it was old containers or manuals
