Gathering In Unity Friday & Saturday

In West Unity on Fri­day, it’s the begin­ning of the annual Gath­er­ing in Unity Days, run­ning Fri­day and Sat­ur­day, and fea­tur­ing antique trac­tors, trac­tor pulls, a parade, along with crafts, food and ven­dors. It’s all hap­pen­ing at Memo­r­ial Park, and is spon­sored by the West Unity Area Cham­ber of Com­merce, and the Unity Antique Power Club. Events kick off Fri­day after­noon at 5 with a chicken bar­be­cue at the shel­ter house, along with live music by Danny and the Back Up Band. The gar­den trac­tor pulls are at 6 p.m. Fri­day, fol­lowed by the ninth annual Miss West Unity Pageant at 7 p.m. Fri­day at Hill­top High School. Saturday’s events begin with a pan­cake and sausage break­fast from 7–10 a.m. at the shel­ter house, fol­lowed by the antique trac­tor show and pull. One big… lit­er­ally, thing this year is a 1978 Hydra Wide plow mea­sur­ing 40 feet long and weigh­ing 36,000 pounds. It was the only one built, and will be pulled by a 1980 550-horsepower trac­tor. Both are owned by Daren Mey­ers of West Unity. The Amer­i­can Legion Rid­ers are spon­sor­ing a poker run on Sat­ur­day. There will be a corn­hole tour­na­ment at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
