The community is invited to celebrate the ‘good ole days’
Five Point Steam Threshers 54th annual reunion Sunday
The 54th annual Five Point Steam Threshers Reunion will be held this Sunday, July 20, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is open to the public, and admission and parking are free.
This year’s reunion will take place at the corner of State Route 199 and Bayer Road in Perrysburg Township.
Local farmers have gathered wheat into shocks, and the dry shocks will be collected in wagons and brought to the reunion to be threshed by old-fashioned steam-powered machines.
The annual reunion provides an opportunity for city and country folk of all ages to experience life on the farms of yesteryear. The “good ole days” are here again.
Sawmill and wheat threshing demonstrations will take place throughout the day, and steam engine plowing demonstrations begin at 1 p.m.
Again this year will be a “kiddie tractor pull.” Registration for this event begins at 1 p.m., and the pull starts at 2 p.m.
Steam engines, antique cars and tractors, and gas engines from the turn of the century will be on display and operating throughout the day.
Homemade bean soup stirred in a giant kettle, fresh steamed corn on the cob, kettle-popped corn and cold drinks will be available for purchase.
In the event of inclement weather, the reunion will be held 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Sunday, July 27.
Pets are not allowed at the reunion.
