Memories relived at antique tractor show

| July 11, 2016

COSHOCTON – If there were ever a theme that could describe this year’s ninth annual Coshocton County Antique Power Association Summer Show, it would be one of nostalgia and remembrance. Between the rows of glimmering tractors, people both young and old alike shared a common interest and spoke of memories from a simpler time. Mere strangers bonded over tractors they grew up using and the memories that they’ve made with them.

According to Coshocton County Antique Power Association member Jim Childress, “There are a lot of senior memories associated with this and when these people come out and see tractors that their dad or grandpa used to have, it really brings them back to that moment in time.”

This year’s tractor display featured many popular models such as John Deere, International Harvester, Ford, Allis-Chalmers, and the featured model for this year’s show being Massey Harris/Ferguson. Aside from the tractors, children also enjoyed themselves as they were able to participate in a number of activities such as a money scramble, a skillet throw, and the always popular kiddie tractor pull.
