The Bluegrass Steam and Gas Engine Association of Harrodsburg, Kentucky held its 12th reunion August 13, 14, 15, at the Danville-Boyle County Fairgrounds, 9 miles south of Harrodsburg on U.S. 127.

Many exhibitors had arrived on Thursday, but on Friday and Saturday morning, they really poured in. Friday saw the many exhibitors getting set up and settled for the weekend. Flea market people started to arrive in the afternoon. By Saturday morning the flea market area was full!

After a rain stopped on Saturday morning, activities really began. The flea market area had all types of things for sale: gadgets, tools, glasswares, pictures, artist drawings, and all kinds of antique auto parts.

Down in the steam engine area, they were getting ready to thresh wheat with a McCormick Deering thresher powered by a big Case engine owned by Dick Gibson.

You also have to include Kitch's Steam Calliope with the steam power. Clovis saw that steam was always up and Elisabeth made the whistles sing their song.
