Admission is $6 for ages 13 and up, $4 for children 5 to 12 and children 4 and under are free. Spectators should bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating.
Event activities are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 22 and 23 and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 24. Tractor and farm machinery displays, a tractor parade every day, pancake breakfast, a transfer sled tractor pull, quilt show, food vendors and a swap meet are some of the activities. Volunteers will offer pumpkin painting, corn shelling, apple cider and steamed apple samples, as well as rope and broom making, and the village will be partially staffed on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
“We’ve intentionally designed this event with families in mind, carefully creating various activities to promote having fun while observing our rural heritage,” Charlton Park Gas & Steam Engine Club President Daryl Cheeseman said.
