Let Off Some Steam
Several years ago the steam show expanded to include internal combustion engines. But just to keep everything on an even keel these new-fangled contraptions are located on the other side of a creek that bisects the fairgrounds. This area may not seem as impressive but it's well worth a visit. Stationary engines that once powered everything from oil wells to washing machines are constantly puttering away- their rhythmic pops and spurts creating a smoky cacophony.
Here's a short video of a few scenes from last year's gathering...
Another site worth visiting while you're there is the Pawnee Bath House.
This year the Pawnee Steam Show will be held May 6-8, 2011. Admission is $7 for adults or $10 for a weekend pass. If you're planning ahead mark your calendar for the first full weekend (Friday included) each May. Enjoy!
It's a Travel Show
Two Wheel Oklahoma is a television travel show featuring the motorcycle rides of Brad Mathison and Rex Brown along the scenic highways and backroads of Oklahoma.
Each episode highlights a stretch of road or historic route and explores unique destinations along the way. Tune in three times a week on the Cox Channel.
We hope you'll come ride along.
