|2018 Halifax County Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival|
The 15th Annual Halifax County Heritage and
Antique Machinery Festival is shaping up to be one of
the best yet with tractor pulls, quarter scale pulls,
mud bogs, toe-tapping gospel and bluegrass music,
classic cars, vintage stock cars, Model A’s,
mouth-watering festival foods, and a great line up of
new and returning vendors and exhibitors.
Among the returning exhibitors is professional
wheelwright, Thomas Tucker of Locust, NC who will
demonstrate the craft of woodworking from the 1800’s
by making intricate pieces of woodwork using a simple
woodturning lathe he handcrafted himself.
Tucker will be located along the Mid-way near the
Exhibit Hall underneath a big white tent displaying his
handmade walking sticks, wooden buckets and funeral
for him to be wearing his signature hat with a turkey
Another returning favorite is Ed Hobbs of
member of the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association,
Hobbs will demonstrate an antique foot powered treadle
jig saw from his vast collection of antique tools.
Wearing period attire, Hobbs will be set-up
inside the Exhibit Hall near Henry and Herbert
Caudle’s impressive antique tool collection.
Back by popular demand is Carl Pletcher of
Altoona, Alabama with his “cut away” tractor.
Pletcher was unable to attend last year’s show
but plans to return this year to show off his 1945 Ford
2N tractor that he cut in half and meticulously restored
showcasing each internal part.
Pletcher’s “cut away” tractor will be on
display in the Exhibit Hall.
These and many other features and attractions are all a part of the 15th Annual Halifax County Heritage and Antique Machinery Festival May 4th and 5th at the Halifax County Fairgrounds.
