By George Kolbenschlag
The 19th Annual Russell Creek/Homeplace on Green River Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show will be held 9am-1pmCT/10am-2pmET, Saturday, June 20, 2015 at Homeplace on Green River, 5807 New Columbia Road, Campbellsville, KY. There is no admission fee for the family oriented show.
There will be a nominal charge for food offered by vendors.
The show this year also includes a plow day. Plow days offer folks with draft animals a chance to gather for a day of fun and fellowship showing their animals and machinery. No competition, just folks with like interests enjoying a day with one another and their animals. Itís an opportunity for those attending the tractor show to watch the animals work.
There will be a variety of antique tractors and gas engines on display and some tractors will participate in contests. There will also be awards in several categories.
In addition to the gas engines and tractors there will be other family activities including the pedal tractor pull for young folks that has been so popular over the years. More than five miles of well-marked woods trails with a trail head at Homeplace will also be open.
This is the same well-known gas engine and tractor show sponsored by Garrison Construction for 15 years. Lewis Garrison moved the show to Homeplace in 2012 because of the added parking and available facilities at the historic farm.
Homeplace is located at 5807 New Columbia Road (State Highway 55) on a 200 acre historic farm 14 miles north of Columbia and five miles south of Campbellsville. First settled in 1804, the buildings and grounds at the farm are being restored as a tribute to the agricultural heritage of South Central Kentucky and a place where young and old can enjoy and learn more about our natural world.
Homeplace has been designated as "Kentuckyís Outdoor Classroom," is open to the public and there are events scheduled there throughout the year. Contacts: Phone for tractor show: 270-789-0006. For Plow Day: 270-932-7503, Larry Penick Website, www.homeplacefarm.ky.
