The Waterman Lions Summerfest and Antique Tractor & Truck Show is always held on the third Saturday in July at Waterman Lions Park in Waterman, IL. There is no admission, and there is no charge for most events. This is a family oriented affair that offers something for everyone. The next show will be on Saturday, July 16, 2016.  

2015 post show update - We had a great show in spite of some serious obstacles - namely a lot of rain before the show that forced cancellation of the tractor pull; then the show fell on the hottest and most humid day of the year. Yet, we had a large crowd and lots of exhibits and other attractions for everyone. 

It is difficult to know where to begin thanking everyone. We must first recognize our donor/sponsors. We could not do the show without their help. Then, we have the countless volunteers within and outside the Lions Club who furnished help and services. And we have the exhibitors who provided the centerpiece attractions. Most of all we thank the people who gave us support by attending our show!
