The Early American Steam Engine Society 23rd Annual Spring Fling Weekend

Spring Fling Weekend every year features an old fashioned engine show where the exhibitors have plenty of room to set up their engines and, park or even camp with their display, and swap parts, engines or just stories. There are no tractor displays in the spring. Along with the engine exhibits is a flea market / yard sale area operating the entire three day weekend, a two day consignment auction, and antique tractor and garden tractor pulls.

Yard Sale / Flea Market (spaces available)
Smaller and more compact that the fall flea market, it is also more affordable for the smaller dealer and the serious yard seller. Open all three days, it is well attended by the usual yard sale crowd and also auction bidders, engine exhibitors and pull crowds. The yard sale /flea market spaces cover 2 distinct areas, one near the garden tractor display and the other near the consignment auction. Be sure to ask for placement in the area of your choice.

For yard sale forms call Rich and Trudy Reichard 717-235-1353
