Camp Creek Threshers

Todd Remmers of Murray keeps a careful eye on all the moving parts as his son Wyatt, pitches bundles of wheat into a 1928 McCormick-Deering threshing machine during the Camp Creek Threshers Antique Machinery and Threshing Show near Waverly in 2016.

The Camp Creek Threshers will be hosting their 20th annual antique machinery and threshing show this weekend.

Held once a year at Camp Creek Threshers' 75-acre property east of Waverly, the gates will open Saturday and Sunday at 6 a.m. and include an all-you-can-eat pancake feed until 9:30 a.m. both days.

The event's main attraction, the Parade of Power, begins at 2 p.m. and will feature a parade of antique agriculture machines, including a thresher demonstration. The show will also feature special exhibits such as a log-sawing gas engine, a rail-mounted steam engine crane and other large industrial equipment.

The show will also show old-fashioned crafting techniques from blacksmiths, potters and weavers, and attendees will be able to see how butter is made and can purchase homemade bread.
