When all other sources fail you, try Google.

From the Grand Haven Tribune:

Wed, Aug 26, 2009

SOUTH HAVEN — The Michigan Flywheelers Museum's Antique Engine and Tractor Show is Sept. 10-13.

In its 26th year, the four-day event draws hobbyists from all over the country to the museum on 68th Street in Geneva Township, near South Haven.

Antique tractors, old flywheel engines and huge steam traction engines are a few examples of the farming machinery that are brought to the show. The show will also feature working demonstrations at the sawmill, shingle mill and blacksmith shop, exhibits in the "Old Towne" area, a migrant farm camp and a new display called "Home Remedies" in the log cabin.

Evening entertainment features local musician Carl Payne at 8 p.m. Thursday, The Bronk Bros. at 8:30 p.m. Friday and the Polka Brothers at 8 p.m. Saturday. The Casco Band plays at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Saturday is Kids Day at the show and starts with a kiddie pedal pull at noon, a sawdust pile treasure hunt at 3:30 p.m. and the John Dudley Magic Show at 7 p.m. In "The Barnyard," kids will be able to drive a "wooden tractor" and hay wagon, and play amongst the farm animal cutouts. Tractor games will be held for those children who have access to riding lawn tractors.

For shoppers, there is a large outdoor flea market with over 220 vendors, and the Wooden Nickel gift shop filled with tractor-related and museum logo items.

Returning this year will be the South Haven Tractor Cruise on Thursday evening. Tractors of all makes and models will be paraded to South Haven, cruise South Beach, and then parked while drivers and families eat dinner in the local restaurants before returning back to the museum. More than 130 tractors are expected to participated in this year's cruise.

Admission to the show is $6. Children age 12 and under are free with an adult.

For more information, call the museum at (269) 639-2010.
