Annual Antique Engine Show is this Weekend

Fly Creek lawn sales also planned


The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard will host its 20th annual Antique Engine Show Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 24 and 25.

Single-cylinder gas engine enthusiasts around the region will join together in displaying their prized antiques from the early 1900’s. Returning to the show this year is John and Kris Dingman’s 1921, 7-hp. Galloway Masterpiece and David Lambert’s 1903, 15-horsepower Reid Engine weighing in at more than 5,000 pounds with 5-foot diameter flywheels. These power-plants will be demonstrated throughout the show along with many other collections. The Engine Show will be held rain or shine both days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

On Saturday only, the mill will hold its annual inventory reduction tent sale in conjunction with the annual Fly Creek Community Day area-wide lawn sales. The entire Fly Creek Valley will bustle with more than 50 lawn sales, shows and special events, according to a media release.

Saturday morning will begin with a pancake breakfast served at the Fly Creek Fire Hall from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Tired and hungry shoppers can refresh themselves at the Fly Creek Cider Mill’s Snack Barn or at the Grange Hall where the Fly Creek Area Historical Society will be selling coffee and sweets starting at 8:30 a.m. followed by hot dogs and hamburgers. The Fly Creek Methodist Church will hold a bake sale in addition to a large lawn sale on their grounds.

Visitors for all events are encouraged to register at the Grange Hall and receive a map of the participating sales. For more information, visit the mill’s website at
