The Old Tyme Show is not just for old folk. In fact, it was full of activities for youngsters clear through adults. Challenging bounce houses were lined up for children to enjoy," just $3 for 6 hours of fun, and there was an "all day kids play area.

The Olde Tymers Association worked hard to make sure this event had plenty to offer and was well worth your time to attend.

The antique tractor pull Friday night had at least 91 hitches and was a well-ran show by the Bald Bluff Tractor Pull Association.

Friday-Saturday showcased live farming demonstrations of yesterday. You could pick up items from the vendor sales and I bought some really nice kitchen utensils from the McLaughlins.

Late Saturday afternoon were Volleyball and Corn Hole tournaments and live entertainment during a delicious ham & beans meal (or hot dogs) and desserts.

Then on Sunday morning biscuits and gravy and a church service were offered to close the event.

One of the high-lights was seeing those at the nursing home enjoy the tractors as they paraded through Oak Wood and Oaklane facilities.

Hats off to the Henderson County Old-Tymers Assoc, sponsors and those who participated in any way. Next year should be even bigger and better as more join in to help with your success.
