Old Threshers taking place this weekend

Celebrating the old ways of doing things returns this weekend with the 42nd Old Threshers Show, Friday through Sunday at the Old Threshers Grounds in Yuma.
Demonstrations such as the horse-power unit, the sawmill, and wheat threshing have been set up and are just waiting for the draft horse or tractor power to run them.
Live blacksmith and rope making demonstrations will be offered daily.
A Garden Tractor Pull will be held Friday at 6 p.m. at the fair grounds.
The Old Threshers Antique and Classic car show will be on display Saturday and Sunday on the Old Threshers grounds.
A barbecue lunch will be served Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. There will be presentations and a benefit auction in front of the Blacksmith Shop, followed by the Parade of Power.
If you want to venture over to the fairgrounds, you can take in a double-tree tractor pull Saturday afternoon and then the regular pull on Saturday evening. Of course the always popular Ladies Cast Iron Skillet Throw will take place on Saturday evening at the grandstands as well, scheduled to start around 7 p.m.
There will be an evening meal and ice cream social on Saturday beginning at 5 p.m. The meal will be provided by the Yuma Drama Club, and ice cream will be available from Antique Treats by Tyson. Robert Woodward will provide live music from 5 to 7 p.m.
And then there will be free old-fashioned Bingo at 7 p.m. There is no charge for cards, and there will be gift prizes from local businesses to promote Old Threshers’ great supporters.
Sunday the group once again plays host to the state finals for the pedal tractor pull starting at 9 a.m. in front of the grandstands, followed by the draft horse pull, and the final tractor pull.
On Sunday the church service will start the day at 9 a.m. followed by all demonstrations taking place throughout the day.
A draft horse pull and antique tractor pull will be held in the afternoon.
Displays, collections, and antique and craft vendors will be on hand again this year as well. A quilt show highlights the displays at the fairgrounds, and the Old Threshers will have a petting zoo and kids zone offering many games and activities for young and old alike.
For the 42nd year the Old Threshers is proud to offer the show and all the activities associated with it at no cost to all who come and participate. Admission, parking, and all demonstrations and entertainment are free, with only the food and a commemorative button offering our visitors a chance to support the group monetarily. It is truly a great form of education and entertainment for the whole family at an affordable price!
Private golf carts will be allowed with adult supervision.
