JP’s 7th Midwest Cub-Arama is set for September 25-27 this fall at JC/Priest Parks in downtown Fredericktown.
For those of you wondering all the details on the show or those who have not yet been able to attend, here is the basic information of this special 7th annual event. Mark your calendars to attend as there are only 4 short weeks to go.
The Cub-Arama is a tractor show for the International Harvester/Farmall Cub tractor line, which includes the Cub, Cub Loboy, and Cub Cadet tractors. This is the only tractor show to feature the Cub line front and center each year. The past two years have also brought in other items produced by the International Harvester Co.
The Cub-Arama is celebrating its 7th year and has grown by leaps and bounds since it all began in 2002. This “little” show, as it started out, is now hosting near 300 tractors that arrive from as many as 25 states and Canada! Tractor enthusiasts from coast to coast and border to border come by car, trucks towing trailers, semi-tractor trailer loads, and RV’s or just drive their little tractors to the show grounds .
Thursday, September 25 will be used as a set up day with a majority of the participants arriving before the days end, if not the day before. The schedule of events starts on Friday morning with two full jam packed, fun filled days for both Friday and Saturday being planned.
The 3rd annual City-Wide Yard Sale will also be held during the Cub-Arama weekend. The City of Fredericktown has agreed to waive its permit fee for anyone who is interested in having a yard sale September 25-27. Also, everyone in the Fredericktown city limits who purchases a yard sale ad in the September 24 issue of the Democrat News will have their yard sale location included on a street map which will be printed in that week’s issue.
