It’s time again for Kafka Open House Nov. 4

Information courtesy of Ken Kafka Pierce, Colo.

It’s fall, and time for Ken Kafka’s Open House, the event to attend that provides fun for all ages. November 4 marks the 11th anniversary of the Kafka’s educational and entertaining Open Houses.

Ken’s 18-inch railroad will be running free of charge this year for visitors of all ages to enjoy train rides. Another favorite in past years has been Karen Kafka’s quilt exhibit, which will again be on display this year. Visitors can tour the small railroad museum in an old wooden railroad caboose behind the old Great Western Sugar Company steam locomotive.

What makes this event special is that guests bring their antique cars, trucks and tractors to show off, providing a wide array of candy for the eyes of collectors, nostalgia lovers, and future restorers. Ken invites anyone interested in bringing their antique vehicles along to please do so. Part of the fun is that nobody ever knows exactly what will be on display. Last year, a great display of old tools, gadgets and metal toys, compliments of Jim and Harry Dill of Greeley, Colo. Don Braddock brought an assortment of antique garden tractors.

Despite the cool wind that was blowing last year, there was a record turnout at the Open House. Folks dressed warmly for the day, and enjoyed free cake, coffee and soft drinks. The Friends of the Greeley Museum furnished a great meal as a fund-raiser for lunch for a modest fee. They are returning again this year, and the word is that there is great prize-winning chili on the menu.
