PROPHETSTOWN – The Coon Creek Men’s Club of Prophetstown will be sponsoring its 28th Annual Farm Toy Show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Prophetstown High School, 310 West Riverside Drive.
Admission for the show is $2 with children younger than 12 free.
The show features vendors of farm toys, trucks, cars, and collectibles of all kinds, along with special toy displays and exhibits. Door prize drawings will be held, and the food stand will have pork BBQ sandwiches and other items.
The show also features a large outdoor display of classic farm tractors and equipment.
Eclipse lawn mowers, manufactured in Prophetstown from 1904 to 1961, are also displayed.
This year, the show will also have a Kid’s Pedal Tractor Display, with a pedal tractor parade at noon. All kids are welcome to bring their pedals.
Those interested in bringing pre-1975 equipment for display may call Gerry Halpin at 815-537-2631 or Dave Matthews at 815-537-2793 for more information.
All proceeds from the show go toward the club’s many civic improvement projects, including the rebuilding of Prophetstown’s historic Washington Street, partially destroyed by the July 15 fire.
