Holmes County Steam and Power Show (Mt. Hope)

August 3-5, 2017
The Steam and Engine show is held annually on the first weekend in August. The show features a Horse Pull on Thursday evening, Tractor and Steam Engine Pulls Friday evening, and Steam Engine and Antique Tractor activities throughout the weekend. The steam traction engine was the predecessor of the gas tractor. It was used for belt and drawbar work. The steam engine used fire to heat the water in the boiler to make steam. It then used the expansive force of steam in a cylinder to create power. The steam engines at the show will be kept busy powering a sawmill, threshing machines, power-eater, Baker fans, steam engine games, and spark shows at night. Admission: $5.00, Children 12 and under are free.
TIME: 9 AM
