The clock is ticking. JP’s Midwest Cub-Arama is only one week away.
This week we would like to let everyone know a little about the events taking place which local folks can enjoy in addition to the wonderful displays of International Harvester/Farmall Tractors, Trucks, and Equipment etc.
The national attention JP’s Midwest Cub-Arama and Fredericktown have received is truly amazing as we start to celebrate our 15th show. In the last 14 shows folks have traveled from 27 states and Canada.
The Tractor Show will again be held in Jaycee and Wanda Priest Park the last full weekend of the month. The park will start to buzz with excitement as it fills up Sept. 22, which is used as a set up day. Then, Friday and Saturday there are events scheduled from open to close each day, which is roughly 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Next week’s edition of the Democrat News will have a full schedule of events and ALL starting times.
CUB-ARAMA PARADE. This year the parade will be on Sept. 24 . The parade will leave Jaycee Park at 1 p.m. Full route will be printed next week’s update. Come out and see a great parade.
KIDDIE TRACTOR PULL: Will begin at noon on Saturday, for any child between the ages of 3-7 who can pedal the provided tractor. All participants will receive a ribbon and winners in each age group win a prize.
IH VENDERS & SWAP MEET AREA: (for parts and tractors), this might be the favorite area. This is a great time to buy, sell and trade, There is something for everyone, including many hard to find items, new and used parts as well as toys and many surprise items.
MO IH CHAPTER 1 COLLECTOR CLUB- This year the MO Chapter of the International Harvester Collector Club will be on hand with lots of IH merchandise for sale and holding their fall membership meeting.
DEMONSTRATIONS & HOW TO CLINICS – Something to see and/or learn for everyone. There are many experienced tips shared and questions answered.
This is just a short list of exciting things happening right here next week. A few others include: live demonstrations, tractor slow races, repair seminars, door prizes, great local concessions and much more.
Also, it is not too late to still show off your piece of American history by entering your International or Farmall item. Keep in mind that ANY condition is welcome. In past the shows average about half and half on condition. There are those that have been restored to even better than original condition to those that come straight from the field to the display lines. The variety of appearance keeps thing more interesting. There is a small registration fee to bring items for display (to pay show expenses), but no cost for spectators to come and see the greatest selection of IH items anywhere.
For more information on any of these items or with questions, please call Jamie Hargis at 573-561-4524. Keep an eye out for more Cub-Arama updates right here. Interested in selling concessions – contact Jamie ASAP.
