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.
