GENTRY -- The 29th Annual fall show of the Tired Iron of the Ozarks will be held this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Tired Iron of the Ozarks showgrounds at 13344 Taylor Orchard Road in Gentry.
The fall show will be a three-day show rather than the two-day show held in April. The showgrounds will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Antique tractors will be lined up for visitors to see and will be driven past spectators at noon each day in the Parade of Power.
A wide variety of antique engines will be running and on display -- many attached to old implements to show their uses in early- to mid-20th-century farm life.
Other features of the show include a working blacksmith shop and sawmills, a furnished log cabin, an outhouse photo booth, old farm implements and demonstrations, antique home furnishings with demonstrations and a concession stand. RV parking is available, and the show and visitor parking are free.
This year's show will feature the electric Farmall tractor and the Fuller-Johnson engine.
Another feature this year will be the Central States Hammer-In and Knife Show, held Saturday in conjunction with the regular visits of the Blacksmiths' Organization of Arkansas. Knives will be created, displayed and sold at the special event.
A Sunday worship service is planned for 10 a.m. at the showgrounds.
From Gentry, visitors may turn west on SWEPCO Road from Pioneer Lane or Crowder Avenue and follow the signs. From Siloam Springs, travel north on Dawn Hill Road and take Taylor Orchard Road around the north side of City Lake and up the hill to the showgrounds.
