GREENVILLE—The 25th annual Greenville Farm Power of the Past officially opened Thursday morning at the Darke County Fairgrounds with the playing of the National Anthem, raising of the American Flag, and opening ceremonies.

“The 25th reunion has kicked off, and we’re ready to go,” said Power of the Past President Chet Linebaugh.  “We’re looking forward to a good time and hope everyone can come out and join us.”

Although Minneapolis-Molin is the featured tractor this year, many well-known makes and models of the past are on the grounds again.

Lesser-known Classic Tractors and Ohio-Built Gas Engines are featured for 2024, featuring Minneapolis-Moline Prairie Gold Rush, Cast Iron Seat Collectors Summer Show, B.F. Avery Summer Show and Custom Club Summer Show.

“It has been a beautiful morning for the Greenville Farm Power of the Past opening ceremony,” Darke County Commissioner Marshall Combs said. “Come out this weekend, bring the family, bring the kids. It’s going to be a great time.”

“We have a lot of powerful machines out here from the past and the present,” Combs added. “I want to thank all the small businesses that put this together, especially all the volunteers. It’s going to be a great weekend.”

The event runs four days, Thursday – Sunday, July 11-14 at the Great Darke County Fairgrounds.
