The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum will present the Valley Heritage Fair Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. across the street from the old University City Mall on the north side of Sprague Avenue.

This year’s activities at the fair include wheat threshing with a 1925 Case threshing machine, grain-grinding, cream-separating, blacksmithing, rope-making, washing machines run with gas engines, quilting, a tractor parade and tractor games.

“The Valley Heritage Fair is a celebration of the agricultural heritage of our area through demonstrations of the way it was done,” said Jayne Singleton, museum director.

Along with the demonstrations, there will be exhibits of antique tractors, gas engines, an 1890s John Deere buckboard, antique fire engines and equipment. There will also be seed-planting with antique equipment, plowing with a hand plow and cultivator and a jumping castle.

The event will also include music and food.

Cost is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for kids ages 7 through 17 and $15 for a family of two adults and three kids.

The proceeds will benefit the museum.

For more information, call the museum at (509) 922-4570.
