Engines roar in Buckley

Engines roared as the forty-sixth annual Buckley Old Engine Show kicked off Thursday.
Trains, tractors, trucks - anything with an engine can be found at the show.
There are many different activities - including sawmill and cidermill demonstrations, blacksmith and woodworking shops, a kid's tractor pull, parades, train rides, and live music.
Organizers say visitors travel from as far away as Hawaii for the show - and with over fifty thousand people expected to come out this year, they've made sure there's something for everyone.
''We have a 1918 steam train with free rides, if you don't like tractors and engines we have a 500 lot flea market selling everything from soup to nuts and anything you'd possibly need," said Jim Luper, a Trustee of the Buckley Old Engine Show. "Amazing food, arts and crafts, old time music, you name it."
The gates open each day at 7am and you can purchase a ticket for ten dollars per day or twenty-five dollars for a four day pass. Some camp out near the show.
Children under 15 can get in for free.
The show continues through Sunday - for a link to the official website (including schedule of events) click here.
