The time has finally arrived. JP’s 8th Midwest Cub-Arama tractor show is scheduled to kick off tomorrow morning in Jaycee/Wanda Priest parks in downtown Fredericktown. (However as you drive around town Wednesday, you may notice many trailers full of RED TRACTORS already proudly entering our town). We are expecting another terrific turnout. Last year we finished with a count of 223 exhibits on display and look to hit around the same mark this year.
Everyone is encouraged to come down to Jaycee Park this weekend to check out the variety of International Harvester that will be on display. Even if you do not own a tractor there is something for everyone. There is NO ADMISSION FEE to come check out some of the American History and look around. It is not to late to show off your tractor. You will need to register to display your items or to bring your extra IH items into the swap meet, but may do so at the main pavilion when you arrive.
Set up will begin on Thursday, September 24 and the show opens on Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September 26 opening at 8 am and running until around 5 pm both days .
The show will again feature all the different model Cub and Cub Cadet tractors and implements produced as well as all the other IH items manufactured over the years as we open the show to all IH items. This will include tractors, trucks, scouts, implements, refrigerators, toys, and much more. We will have plenty to do and see.
Fun for the Entire Family awaits you.
