The 19th Annual Wheatland Poppin’ Johnnies Swap Meet will be Oct. 30, 31 and Nov. 1, 2009 (Halloween weekend).

Originally scheduled for Oct. 23-25, the swap meet changed dates due to a scheduling conflict at the venue.

Held at the Kansas Coliseum Pavilion, I-135 and 85th St. N. in Wichita, Kan., the swap meet will include a toy show, arts and crafts, stationary engines, a tractor show, and sale: tractors, parts, equipment and related farm items, any make. An antique auction will be provided by Nixon Auctioneers of Wakefield, Neb., on Saturday at 2 p.m. The hours for the swap meet are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Saturday and then Sunday 9 a.m. till noon.

A drawing will be held for a 1939 Model B John Deere (serial number 84334). The Antique & Classic Tractor Pull for 1952 and older using Division 2 and 3 NATPA Rules starts Oct. 26 at 11 a.m.
