With fall officially here, residents of Cliff, New Mexico, are once again looking forward to the Grant County Fair, which will take place from Wednesday, September 26 through Sunday, September 30, the Silver City Sun-News reports.
According to the media outlet, the annual fair is held to celebrate the county's rich agricultural heritage, excite residents about future farming in the region and to let Cliff families take a walk through rows of tractors that span decades. Other exhibits include animals, other farm equipment and crafts donated by schools from throughout the county.
On Thursday night, attendees will gather to watch the annual Ranch Rodeo, and on Friday and Saturday night, residents will be treated to the long-awaited Rough Stock/Casper Baca True American Tour Rodeo.
Tractor displays will be set up starting Thursday and will last through the remainder of the event.
Often, antique John Deere tractors are found at such events, as their proven durability and reliability keep the machines running for generations. The John Deere Model D, for example, was first produced in 1923, but several still exist throughout the country thanks to devoted Deere enthusiasts who preserve these green machines.
