Tired Iron fall show fires up Friday
John Deere to be featured tractor at 26th annual event in Gentry
GENTRY — The 26th annual fall show of the Tired Iron of the Ozarks begins on Friday and runs through Sunday. Times are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The fall show will be held at the Tired Iron of the Ozarks showgrounds at 13344 Taylor Orchard Road in Gentry.
Featured tractors this fall will be John Deere. They, along with other makes and models, will be lined up for visitors to see and will be driven past spectators at noon each day in the Parade of Power.
Upright engines will also be featured. 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, tractor games, a furnished log cabin, outhouse photo booth, rope making, antique tractor and engine displays, old farm implements and demonstrations, antique home furnishings with demonstrations, concession stand serving breakfast and lunch, music, a flea market, and 9 a.m. Sunday church services.
RV parking is available, and show and visitor parking are free. From Gentry, visitors may turn west on SWEPCO Road from Pioneer Lane 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.
More information on the show and the club is available on the club’s website: tiredironoftheozarks.org. Tired Iron of the Ozarks meets at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month at the club’s showgrounds.
