Pioneer Power Days Back to ‘The Good Old Days’

Pioneer Power Days  Back to ‘The Good Old Days’

Power at a meandering pace is the focus of the annual Pioneer Power Days held annually in June across from the Lewistown Airport.

Sizzling beef, homemade ice cream and yeasty fresh baked bread slathered in butter top off a day of tractor rides, steam engine demonstrations, blacksmithing and more. All the good things of days gone by are enjoyed by visitors, who spend the day just slowing down.

Highlights include a “slow race,” a tractor parade of about 60 early models, a full production blacksmith shop, an early 1900s shingle mill, old time hay baler, rock crushing, all operating in close proximity, reminis-cent of an early 1900’s town. “It is all about sharing history,” said event co-coordi-nator of The Central Montana Flywheelers and Antique Association, branch No. 51 of the National Early Gas En-gine and Tractor Association, which sponsors the event.
