PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Southeast Kansas Old Time Gas Engine and Tractor Club will host its 34th annual Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show and Swap Meet on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7 and 8, at the Crawford County Historical Museum. 

“New additions have been made for the show and swap meet including arts and crafts vendors, kids activities, live music by Johnnie Zibert Polka Band, raffle prizes, plus more,” said Museum Director Amanda Minton. “We are excited for our first Fall Homeschool Day on Friday. This will give students an opportunity to have a hands-on agriculture experience from the Tractor Club.”  

Fall Homeschool Day will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, and will feature a hay baling press, corn sheller, cider press, and barrel trains, among other attractions and activities. Admission is free. Lunch, including a hot dog, chips, and water bottle, will be available for $4. Following Fall Homeschool Day, the Tractor Show and Swap Meet will continue until 4 p.m. Friday, and will resume at 10 a.m. Saturday. 

Activities as part of the Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show and Swap Meet on Saturday include a “parade of power” at 11:30 a.m., live music from noon to 2 p.m., drawing for the 50/50 pot at 4:30 p.m., two classes of women’s skillet toss, and two rolling pin contest classes. Minton added that the traditional free bean feed, always a favorite, will be available at noon on Saturday.
