Description:

Combines are a familiar sight on the Eastern Shore, moving purposefully and efficiently through fields of grain, corn and soy beans, offloading their harvest into waiting trucks.  But seeing a combine from afar is very different from being close enough to touch one.

Festivities begin with a parade led by a horse-drawn combine, followed by  antique tractors, garden tractors, an antique fire truck, and combines of red and green. Following the “Throttle Thrust” Master of Ceremonies Barry Laws  leads a program with presentation of colors by the Snow Hill JROTC, and featuring keynote speaker Chuck Fry, President, Maryland Farm Bureau,  followed by the blessing of the combines by Collins Temple A.M.E Church.  

Exhibits and displays are set up along Green, Pearl and Bank Streets, including a Petting Barnyard.  At the Children’s Barnyard are sand art, face painting, a soy bean pit, a moon bounce, a working pitcher pump, and a new corn maze just for children. Lollipop the Clown, and a strolling magician will delight young and old.  Hayrides and pony  rides will be available.   The Program Stage will feature God’s Country Crossroads, “Mike Short and Outlaw Revival”, and Ted Elliott.    Festival food vendors on Bank Street join Harvest Moon,  Miss Patticake, The Emporium, Blue Dog and The American Legion in offering a wide selection of delicious foods.   Further down Bank Street, near Scales and Tales, you will find the Worcester County Emergency Services Special Operations Trailer and the Maryland State Police Rescue Boat along with craft vendors who compliment Snow Hill’s shops. The Pie Eating Contest and the Children’s Tractor Pull are held. The Worcester County Extension Office is celebrating 100 Years of Extension with an Open House.   At the river, Pontoon Boat Cruises are available. At 10:00 The Wheels That Heal Car Club will host a car show along the Pocomoke River. 

 At 3:00 the festival ends as the combines leave Green Street.  Activities continue as at 3:30 pm the Lawn Mower Tractor Pull kicks off at Preston Motors Snow Hill Auto Body; and  at 7:00 Dancing Under the Stars at Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum begins.

Don’t miss a walk along The Paul Leifer Nature Trail over the Nassawango Cypress Swamp for views of cedar, cypress, and pine above – and sweet gum balls, partridge berry, and wintergreen at your feet. Warm up in the Gathering Room with mulled cider and cookies, and browse the Museum Store’s broad selection of created treasures made by Furnace Town’s own weaver, blacksmith, broom-maker, printer, woodworker, and gardener. The Museum also features books on local topics, toys of yesteryear, and many other local items. There will be crafts for kids, and local crafts and arts, including homemade breads and cookies, jewelry, wooden crafts and antiques will be available for purchase.
