Equipment from Iowa’s agricultural history will be chugging away in the fields of north-central Iowa at an event starting today in Wright County. David Nelson is helping coordinate the 20th annual Antique Power Machine and Country Craft Show in the Belmond area.
He says they’ll be threshing about 15 acres of oats, plowing 50 acres of ground with old tractors, and sawing wood with steam engines. Case equipment is being highlighted this year. Nelson says there will be plenty of food and musical entertainment at the festival, which runs through Sunday.
The event is sponsored by the Belmond Area Arts Council and the Jenison-Meachum Art Museum. For more information, visit: www.belmondartscenter.org ".
