Michigan Flywheelers Antique Engine & Tractor Show!
Over 100 tractors will be parading into South Haven as part of the annual “South Haven Tractor Cruise” hosted by the Michigan Flywheelers Museum.
The event, which takes place Thursday, Sept. 6, is part of the museum’s Antique Engine and Tractor Show which runs through Sunday, Sept. 9.
At 4 p.m., the parade of machinery, escorted by local law enforcement, will leave the museum grounds on 68th street, travel down 8th avenue to 73rd street. After crossing I-196, the tractors will head downtown to South Beach.
From there, the group will head back to the Huron Street parking lot where the tractors will be parked while drivers, families and friends grab something to eat and do a little shopping.
The parade will head back to the museum about 7 p.m.
Anyone interested in participating in the event needs a tractor that can run a minimum of 10 miles per hour, a slow moving sign and a full tank of gas. Lineup begins at 3:30 p.m. at the museum.
The cruise is one of many activities that takes place during the four day show. Along with hundreds of antique farm machinery, there is entertainment, a flea market, tractor pulls, kids activities and more. Admission is $7 per person with children 12 and under free. Thursday is Senior Citizen Day and admission is reduced to $3 for those 62 and over.
