Last Blast at the Simcoe County Museum

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Minesing/October 10, 2019 – The Simcoe County Museum and the Historical Construction Equipment Association (H.C.E.A) of Canada present Last Blast on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. One of the Museum's most popular events, Last Blast brings to life vintage construction equipment, tractors, classic trucks, steam-powered rollers, shovels, road-building equipment, and much more with demonstrations for visitors of all ages.

In addition to machinery displays and demonstrations, visitors can stroll the Museum grounds, take in the permanent displays, and visit the indoor vendor area along with the Mecanno® display and hands-on Mecanno® area.

Stay for the day and purchase lunch at the concession stand, or pack your own lunch to enjoy at one of our covered picnic areas. If you missed Wheels and Tracks in the spring, Last Blast will be your last chance to catch the area's antique machines in action before the snow flies.
