Antique engine show October 5 at Limberlost Historic Site
Craft vendors being sought for popular event
Geneva, Ind.— One of Northeast Indiana’s favorite events is back! It’s the time to again see the antique gasoline engines and tractors at the Limberlost State Historic Site. The annual engine show will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sun., Oct. 5.
The event will be in the parking lot of the Limberlost — the 1895-1913 historic home of naturalist and author Gene Stratton-Porter. The home will be open for tours. Vendors will have refreshments and craft items for visitors. Admission is free.
Prize ribbons will be awarded to show participants in the categories of largest engine, smallest engine, oldest engine, oldest exhibitor, youngest exhibitor and the exhibitor that traveled the greatest distance. Special prize buttons will be given to the "old-timers," exhibitors who have brought an engine to all previous shows.
The engine show has been a regular attraction at the site for more than a decade and is sponsored by the Limberlost State Historic Site and the Friends of the Limberlost. Engine show participants are not required to register and gasoline will be provided.
The site is seeking craft vendors for the event (pre-registration is required). To register as a vendor, contact Randy Lehman at the Limberlost historic site at 260-368-7428.
The Limberlost State Historic Site is part of the Department of Natural Resources division of state museums & historic sites with 14 sites throughout the state. The site is located at 200 E. 6th St. in Geneva. Admission is free. Further information is available at the number above.
