The annual Ford-Fortson show
will be held at the Pageant of Steam show in Canandaigua New York.
This is the first time the show has been held this Far East and we
look forward to seeing the many local tractors and hope the rest of
you will come see a different part of the country. The show is from
the 5th to the 8th of August and is located
just off route5&20 just east of city of Canandaigua in western New
York. There is primitive camping on the grounds with a limited
number of sites with power, but not enough to run air conditioners.
There are a number of motels nearby many within 3-10 miles of the
show. The sponsors are planning a Ford only tractor pull for those
of you who are interested. For those of you making a vacation out of
the trip there is a lot to do in the region. The area is at the
north end of the Finger Lakes with many resort areas. The Finger
Lakes are famous for the many wineries located on the shores and
there are many possibilities to sample the products and tour the
vineyards. The Empire Field Days are held earlier in the week about
a half hour away. This is the largest new farm equipment show in the
east and they have field demonstrations also.
