Full Steam Ahead in Edgar


It was a sight to be seen in Edgar Saturday as the Northcentral Wisconsin Antique Steam and Gas Engine Show rolled into town.
It is a weekend long event that helps show off the amazing technology that helped the farmers of yesteryear harvest and grow crops more efficiently as well as spark the entire Industrial Revolution.

All different types of engines are on display and the show is very interactive.
People get to see exactly how the equipment was used.
It features collectors who have restored old engines to their former glory. Many of the engines have remained with single families for generations.
Steam and Gas Engine Club secretary and collector Dana Hennig says the show is definitely worth checking out.

"I think we create a big draw. Their is a lot of big equipment here to see here and we have a very large flea market that people love to go through. We get new people all the time because word spreads and they have a fun time. " Henning says.

Organizers say many people come from all around the state and across the country to attend the show. They have campgrounds available for those that want to attend for the entire weekend. The show runs through Sunday and admission is $7. More information can be found by logging on to http://edgarsteamshow.com
