The Great Plains Antique Tractor Show will be held in Inman, Kansas, as a celebration of the area's rich agricultural heritage, according to The Hutchinson News.

A variety of John Deere tractors will be featured at the event, as the antique models of the agricultural giant's most popular line of farm equipment have been a staple in the event for years, reported the news source.

Certain attendees of the event have more than 4 models of the antique John Deere tractors, including the man in charge of the proceedings, who owns a Model A, B, G and D version of the vehicle.

"It’s to show a history of how things were, how the wheat thresher worked versus using combines now," George Bell, president of the Great Plains Antique Tractor Club, told the News. "It lets older folks remember the old days and lets young folks see the changes, how farming used to be. It’s a fun family deal."

Along with the tractor show, the event will feature a threshing demonstration and the awarding of the Mayor's Trophy, according to the Great Plains Antique Tractor Club website.
