Where is it: Old Petrie Town, Whiteside
What's it all about: A day for the steam engine restorers to show off all their hard work!
How can I join in: Just head out to Old Petrie Town with a gold coin donation and be amazed at some of these spectacular pieces of machinery!
Tell me more: This little event took us a little by surprise as we didn't think that we would enjoy it as much as we did! It's always an interesting visit out to Old Petrie Town, but the prospect of seeing a display of vintage stationary engines and a parade of amazing steam powered rollers and tractors and we had to get out to see it! There's more on offer as well with vintage bus rides, machinery displays, jumping castles for the kids plus all the regular attractions from Old Petrie Town - one our favourites was the steam museum which has some huge working engines that you can't help but be impressed by! Sunday at the Steam Fair has the added attraction of the markets, so you'll definitely have an enjoyable day out!
