Antique Fair Will Feature ĎOld and New, Tried and Trueí

As the final weekend of August approaches, everything has aged a year since the last Scotland County Antique Fair. That fits right into the annual celebration of local history. The slogan for the 2006 Scotland County Antique Fair is ďOld and New, Tried and TrueĒ, a theme that not only fits the many exhibits at the fair, but the four-day event itself, which obviously is Tried and True and filled with plenty of Old and New.

Thursday evening marks the traditional start of the festivities as exhibitors have spent the day setting up booths on the Memphis City Square. Food stands including the famous Lions Ice Cream stand will be opening as well as the numerous craft booths and antique displays. Toys and quilts for display may set up at the old Cooper Printing building.

The 2006 royalty will be crowned at 6:00 p.m. on August 24th. Organizers will announce the Antique Fair king and queen, the junior king and queen as well as the prince and princess. The latter caps off the annual Antique Fair baby show.

Other entertainment on the opening night will include the opening of the Rotary Club bingo tent and the Mystery Train Band on stage starting at 8:00 p.m.

Event sponsors will conclude the night with a number of raffle drawings and prize giveaways scheduled for 10:00 p.m.

The vendors and food stands will be open all day Friday on the square. Visitors will also be able to tour the Downing House, the Boyer House, the Railroad Depot and the new Wiggins Family Tractor Museum.

The Heritage Band will be performing under the tent from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. on August 25th.

Tractor judging and small engine results will be done Friday afternoon when the window display winners will be announced.

Friday eveningís entertainment will include the back-seat driver contests, a demonstration by the Canine Capers, more bingo, bed races, tractor games and much more.

Guests can get an early start on Saturday as the Scotland County Fire Department breakfast will start at 6:00 a.m. at the fire station.

The parade will start forming at 10:00 a.m. when judges will begin reviewing floats before the march begins at 11:00 a.m.

Spectators will have plenty of options for lunch including the Rotary barbecued pork chops and chicken.

The car show will fill the north, south and west sides of the square following the lunch hour. A Texas Holdíem Tournament sponsored by Farm Bureau will be held at the fire station starting at 2:00 p.m.

Pony rides will be offered off the northeast corner of the square while the kiddie tractor games are going on starting after lunch. The cakewalk starts at 2:30 p.m. on the north side of the square.

The Poker Run will start at 5:00 p.m. with the Road Rally starting at 6:00 p.m. The micro-mini tractor pull will kick off at 6:30 p.m. with the country music show taking the stage at 8:00 p.m.

The Sunday schedule includes a draft horse pull at the fairgrounds at 10:00 a.m. followed by an antique tractor pull at 1:00 p.m. Briggs-Smith Memorial Airport will host a free fly-in dinner from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with airplane rides being offered all day.
