THE “HISTORY ON WHEELS CAR SHOW” will be another facet in 2015. A grouping of restored vehicles used for touring and life on the farm will be available for viewing. These vehicles are from the region and brought in buffed and polished to represent their heyday. Old folks will remember and young folks will scratch their head in confusion that anything like that ever existed. Trophies will be awarded. One special trophy will be from the Mayor’s office.

We will have this year Yazoo City’s Glenwood Cemetery tour. Glenwood Cemetery was voted one of the most beautiful cemeteries in America. You will see where the witch that burned the town down is buried which is not too far from writer Willie Morris who rekindled her fame in his book, My Dog Skip. With Antique Days 2015, The witch will be in the cemetery to welcome around visitors and recant the history of some of Glenwood’s great sleeping. Transportation up to the town canal and on to Glenwood will be provided.

Leo Beatty will come with his sugar cane mill to make cane syrup at Antique Days. Crushing will start at 7:00 A.M. on Oct 24th and cooking of the syrup will start at around 8:00 A.M. It will take all day to cook the syrup and you can purchase the syrup at the end of the day in pints and quarts.

Pair the fresh homemade cane syrup with Ann Taggart’s homemade biscuits made on site in an antique wood burning stove and you have just taught anyone with a sweet tooth the value of the internal combustion farm engine. Grandfathers now have the chance at Antique Days to show their grandchildren how life’s pleasures can be very simple.

Lyle Wynn, professional blacksmith with the Ms. Craftsman Guild will be giving demonstrations and selling his handmade items straight from his forge.

Arlon Holder and his antique gristmill will be grinding and selling cornmeal . You can buy yellow or white cornmeal from him.

Greg Harkins, Master chairmaker

Bobby Rico, Master Knife Maker
