The National Threshers Association (NTA) will be hosting its 73rd Annual Reunion Thursday, through Sunday at the Fulton County Fairgrounds north of Wauseon. This year’s show will be featuring Advance steam engines, Oliver tractors and equipment, and Fairbanks Morse gas engines.
The 2017 NTA Reunion, the oldest event of its type, is expected to attract several thousand visitors from around the world. Working exhibits will include dozens of steam traction engines – predecessors to today’s farm tractors – in addition to hundreds of antique tractors and gas engines.
As in past years, daily demonstrations at the show include grain threshing; sawmill, shingle mill and veneer mill operations; plowing; horsepower testing; and machinery parades with covered grandstand seating for spectators.
Steam engine spark shows are scheduled for Friday and Saturday after dark. Musical entertainment, a kiddie tractor pull, food concessions and flea market booths are among the other highlights.
One-day admission is $5, and a four-day membership is $10. Children 12 and under are free with an adult admission.
