Visitors to the Rio Grande Valley Livestock show were treated to a group of John Deere enthusiasts and their favorite used farm equipment, as these individuals paraded their tractors around the rodeo ring, The Brownsville Herald reported.

According to the newspaper, John Deere tractors that were seen at the show dated as far back as 1927, and enthusiasts from all over showed up to show their pride in their green and yellow machines.

The Herald reported that John Deere enthusiasts tend to go to events with their favorite tractors as a way of showing off their hard work and congregating with other fans to talk about their passion for the product.

One attendee, Fernando Barrios, noted that he spent more than a year restoring a 1951 John Deere tractor and brought it to the event to share it with other enthusiasts.

"It’s like they say, you can’t get it out of your blood," he told the news source.

The Rio Grande Valley Livestock show, like many other events across the country that deal with farm equipment, has a Kids Pedal Tractor Pull, as children can show up and ride on miniature versions of the models they see parading around the grounds, according to the event's website.
