Wheatland Poppin' Johnnies — Date Change

Reader Contribution by Terri Keitel

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.
