The Little Log House Pioneer Village hosted its 31st annual Antique Power Show July 23-25. Thousands of people flocked to the unique event in the sun and heat to take in its numerous attractions. Those attractions included several displays of antique vehicles ranging from classic cars and military vehicles to fire trucks and farming equipment, on top of over 45 replica and restored historical buildings. 

Over the course of the weekend smaller events were held as well. There were living history demonstrations, World War II and Viking combat re-enactments, a daily pancake breakfast, parades and a truck/tractor pull. This is on top of multiple food vendors, pop-up shops, equipment displays from area organizations and families as well as live music every day by The Squires Band.

The Little Log House Pioneer Village is opened up to the public just one weekend a year, which is the Antique Power Show. Otherwise, it is closed to the public but used for weddings, receptions, parties and corporate events. It is located off of 220th St. E. at 21889 Michael Ave just a couple minutes from Miesville.
