The merchant mall was a popular attraction. Live music was provided by Play'n Country throughout the event in a small auditorium at the back of the merchant mall. Folks also flocked to events such as the Parade of Power and the Tractor Pull, which provided an excellent opportunity to see these old machines in action. Weather was definitely a factor in the Tractor Pull, as the heat picked up on the Saturday and Sunday, resulting in shorter pulls.
A barn dance was held on Saturday night at the Red Barn loft, while a non-denominational community church service took place on Sunday morning. Local volunteers put in a lot of effort in creating and maintaining both the grounds and equipment of Heritage Acres.
Heritage Acres will be holding a Fall Fair on Saturday, September 15. This is a new event for the museum, combining a harvest threshing bee with a bench show and arts and crafts demonstrations.
