Nothing says North Fork like local farms, and nothing says farming like a good old-fashioned tractor pull. On July 13 and 14 the Long Island Antique Power Association is hosting its 21st Annual Summer Show, featuring, of course, some great traditional tractor pulls.

The annual show is based around cars and will highlight tons of vintage “hotrod” treasures. There will also be both large and small operating hit-miss engines. These engines are from all different kinds of vehicles and each has its own unique story from the early 20th century.

Vintage racecars and racing memorabilia will also be on display from The Himes Museum of Motor Racing Nostalgia in Bay Shore. The Long Island chapter of the American Truck Historical Society will be on hand to provide different trucks as well as rides in the giant monster trucks.

Both large and garden tractor pull competitions will take place.

On Saturday night there will be a dinner that costs $25 per person and includes salad, grilled vegetables, smoked Texas brisket, grilled lemon chicken, and a variety of sides.

The show will happen in rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days and will be at 6000 Sound Avenue in Jamesport, next to the Hallockville Farm and Museum.

Admission is $6 and children 12 and under are free. Parking is also free.
