A skillet-throwing contest will be held for the ladies. Sawmilling and blacksmithing will be at various times throughout the day. 

Admission if free, however, donations will be appreciated. There is no fee for exhibitors. 

The Wilson County Antique Power Association was organized in 1991 as a nonprofit. The primary function is to promote the collection, restoration, improvement and display of antique agricultural equipment. Anyone with those interests is encouraged to join the club.
