Union Gap hosts antique farm equipment

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP--A visit to Fulbright Park seems like a trip back in time this weekend.

Saturday and Sunday old-fashioned tractors, sawmills and steam engines take over the park for the Central Washington Antique Farm Equipment Exposition.

Seeing the tools of yesteryear gave many an appreciation for how far we've come.

"[When threshing wheat,] one guy today rides in an air conditioned cabin and combine and does it all in one job," Expo President Todd Monroe said.  "[Then] you had to have a crew out to cut the wheat down and put it into bundles."

Proceeds from the expo go towards keeping the old equipment up and running.

The farm expo continues Sunday.
