The 18th annual Rice County Steam and Gas Engines Swap Meet and Flea Market is this Saturday and Sunday. The gates will be open both days from 5AM to 6PM. The consignment auction will be Saturday morning at 9AM, the tractor pull Sunday morning at 9AM. Breakfast will be available on the show grounds both days along with many other food vendors for later in the day. The show grounds are 3 miles south of Northfield on Highway 3 in Dundas.

I have known many members of the Rice County Steam and Gas Engine Club for quite some time. I even remember when their show was in a pasture on a farm by Interstate 35. Things really began expanding when the club purchased the property in Dundas by the Cannon River. With their own show grounds, they could begin to move historic buildings onto the grounds and make other improvements. I sure hope  the weather cooperates for their show and all the Memorial Day programs on Monday too.
