Photos from the Elnora Antique Show

Hello, adventurers!

When I was a little girl, all the kids at Lighthouse Christian Academy looked forward to a particular Friday in September. The old bus, which held the entire student body of LCA, chugged along HWY 57 North to Elnora, Indiana, for the White River Valley Antique Association Show, a mouthful locals shorten to the Antique Show.

The event has been around for 32 years, and there have only been a couple of years I’ve missed it. Squeezed between Labor Day and the first day of autumn, the Antique Show is the perfect way to usher in the new season.

Tractors and other pieces of farm machinery are the stars of the show.

The old cars and trucks are pretty cool.

There are cute little tractors to admire, too. 🙂

As an animal lover, I make a beeline for the animal barn.

There are lots of food options as well. My personal favorites are the homemade ice cream and the persimmon pudding. The apple cider slushies are great as well. (I have a sweet tooth). But there are many other choices available for those wanting a hearty meal or just a snack.

Step back in time when you visit the old school house, the church, and other “old” structures.

The demonstrations are educational and fun to watch.

The flea market offers antiques, collectibles, and fall decor.

This year is especially special because it’s Indiana’s bicentennial.

If this sounds like an event you’d like to attend, please visit next year in September (the weekend after Labor Day)!

Happy Trails!
