ALBERT?CITY – The Albert City Threshermen and Collectors Show will have several new activities this year. The three-day show runs Aug. 12 through Aug. 14.

This year the association will host the J.I. Case Heritage Foundation as it celebrates its 25th annual expo. The Northland Case Collectors Club will join also, holding its annual summer show here.

Case collectors from all over the U.S. and Canada will exhibit and demonstrate a large selection of Case automobiles, steam engines, early- and late-model tractors.

The Case Incline Ramp will be a unique attraction this year. Carl Tuttle, from Howell, Mich., will drive his Case steam engine up the ramp demonstrating its power and abilities. His event is typically done at shows in Pawnee, Okla., and Rollag, Minn.

Another new attraction for this year is an Antique Appraisal Fair. Event attendees may bring their antique items to have appraised during the show. The event will be held in the entertainment shelter on Aug. 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Also new this year will be a steam spark show. This will be held after the Friday evening tractor pull. Steam engines will hook up to the weights, fill up the firebox with saw dust, and the sparks will fly for all to enjoy.

Aug. 13 evening entertainment will be provided at 6 p.m. by the Clutterbilly Band, a hillbilly country music band from central Iowa which has been playing for nine years.

Admission for those 12 years and older is $7 per day, or a three-day pass can be purchased for $15. Children 11 and under are admitted free.

Field demonstrations will include corn shelling, combining, baling, disking, raking and threshing.

Regularly scheduled exhibits include a toy show, wood shop, wood carvers, a heritage doll show, quilt show, petting barn, arts and crafts, vintage military vehicles, antique cars and trucks, Ridge Runners, blacksmith shop, broom factory, flour mill, saw mill, school house, farm house, Svenska Stuga, horse activities and of course lots of food including homemade ice cream.
