43rd Annual Steam and Gas Engine Association Show

ESCANABA — The 43rd annual Steam and Gas Engine Association Show went on this weekend at the U.P. State Fairgrounds.

 

 

Monday was the last day of the show, but the weekend went off without a hitch.

There are tractor vendors, as well as shopping at the flea market, an arts and crafts area, and a gun show.

The attendance grows every year and people are able to show off their tractors in the parade.

“This tractor has been in the family since I was about 10–years–old, I can remember my dad getting it when I was about ten. So it’s a working tractor, runs fine and everything so we have good sentiment with it” said participant, Robert St. John.

“Oh yeah, over the 43 years we really have grown, we’ve got a lot more interest in it. The general public really turns out for it” said President & Original Association Organizer, Skip Dofour.

“It’s a great family event, you know we have everything for the ladies, the kids, for the guys.”

The show happens every year, so if you’re looking for something to do next year on labor day weekend . . .  The Steam and Gas Engine Association Show could be one of things.
