Farm Power of the Past set for Thursday opening

Family friendly Greenville Farm Power of the Past ready for Thursday morning opening ceremonies

GREENVILLE – The 2022 Greenville Farm Power of the Past is nearly ready for Friday morning’s 9 a.m. opening ceremonies.

“We invite everybody out,” said Farm Power of the Past President, Chet Linebaugh. “We would love to see people come by and support the club and enjoy the scenery with all the tractors and engines. Hopefully there is something at the flea markets and the food concessions they’ll find appealing.”

“We try to make a family friendly event,” Linebaugh added. “We have a lot of kid’s activities this year. We are continuing with the kiddie coin scramble in the straw pile and we are adding a second scavenger hunt with prizes for the kids.” 

The 2022 show features Massey-Harris, Massey Ferguson, Ferguson, Ford, Fordson Tractors and equipment and is hosting the Massey Harris Ferguson Club of Ohio State Show.

The show also features Fairbanks Morse and Company and Side-Shaft Engines.

“What we are trying to do is to preserve the historical part of farming in Darke County,” said Power of the Past Secretary, Barbara Young. “Saturday we will have a Farm Bureau Tractor Cruise In.”

Several major show events include:

Truck & Tractor Pull – 7 p.m. Friday

Antique Tractor Pull – 10 a.m. Saturday

Kiddie Tractor Pull – 2 p.m. Saturday

Parade (Grandstand) – 3 p.m. Saturday

Coin Scramble for Kids – 4 p.m. Saturday

Heavy Weight Horse Pull – 6 p.m. Saturday

Car Show – Sunday 10 p.m. Sunday

“The amount of community support we get for this show is phenomenal,” Linebaugh said. “We’ve had a lot of younger people come in this year bringing in tractors so that is encouraging for us for the future. We already have a very good turnout of tractors, engines, our flea market and food trucks are growing so we are very proud of that.”
