2016 Halifax County Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival



Get ready for some mud slinging action… with a little twist… as the Halifax County Heritage and Antique Machinery Festival, in cooperation with Sign Rock Mud Bog of Vernon Hill, presents three big Mud Bog events the first weekend in May at the Halifax County Fairgrounds. 

The first competition is set for Friday evening, May 6 at 7 pm for serious mud bogging trucks.  Registration begins at 5 o’clock.  

The second big event for trucks is Sunday afternoon May 8 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm followed by a Four Wheeler Mud Bog beginning at 4 pm.


Now for the twist…..Since Sunday, May 8 is Mother’s Day, a special “Muddy Mothers” contest is planned at 4 o’clock.   And here’s how it works:  A grand prize will be awarded to the  mother who successfully runs all the way through the mud pit and is first to reach the other side. 

The crowning of the “First Heritage Festival Muddy Mother” is sure to draw a huge crowd….and hopefully many brave mothers who don’t mind getting a little muddy.  Don’t worry moms; there will be a water hose for rinsing off afterwards!!

General admission charge to the Heritage Festival is required for all Mud Bog spectators.  For more information about the Mug Bogs and the “Muddy Mother” contest contact, Charles Slagle at 434-579-3083. 

The 13th Annual Halifax County Heritage and Antique Machinery Festival will be held at the Halifax County Fairgrounds May 6th through 8th.   Festival times are Friday from 12 noon until 9 pm; Saturday from 9 is to 9 pm and Sunday from 1 pm until 5 pm. 

Admission is $5.00 for adults and children 12 years old and older.  Children under 12 years old are admitted free of charge.
