The Historical Construction Equipment Association (HCEA) is holding its 36th Annual International Convention and Old Equipment Exposition. The show will be held at the HCEA’s National Construction Equipment Museum, 16623 Liberty Hi Road, Bowling Green, Ohio.

The show features live demonstrations of antique construction machinery powered by horses or mules, steam, electricity, gas and diesel. Equipment and vehicles built or powered by International Harvester are being featured, along with the National Construction Equipment Museum’s unique collection of over sixty machines. Many of the machines being shown were built in Ohio communities, including Marion, Galion, Lorain, Euclid, Cleveland and Columbus.

All owners of antique construction equipment, trucks and engines are encouraged to bring their machines for display; past shows have had equipment from as far away as California. The last HCEA show in Bowling Green had over 330 exhibits.
