The 35th Annual Northeast Missouri Old Threshers will start Thursday, Sept. 15 and run through Sunday, Sept. 18 in Shelbina.  The event is a four-day event that showcases life in the late-1800s to mid 1900s. Various equipment will be on display and there will be live working demonstrations.  

Attendees will have the chance to watch sawmill, steam engine, threshing and tractor demonstrations. Thursday kicks off with a tractor ride and tours for local schools. Every year on Thursday and Friday area schools are invited to attend for free to watch the past come alive and learn about the history of agriculture and farming.  In the past close to 1,000 school kids have attended.
