Brandy Banks noticed that her young son couldn't think of anything besides antique tractors after he saw a sign for the Cumming Steam, Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Exposition. Her only solution was to take him to see the show, according to Forsyth News.
Her son, Elijah, was especially excited to see the green and yellow John Deere models, as he had a toy tractor at their house that was among his favorites. His grandmother noted that she saw his level of interest pique right around the time of the Exposition, the news source reported.
"He loves tractor toys and anything doing with equipment like [earth movers] and old cars, all that sort of thing," Banks told the news source. "We really don’t care about tractors, but he loves them. The things you’ll do as a nana."
The Cumming Fairgrounds has been the site for the antique tractor since 2001, when the local farm equipment enthusiasts started the event to generate interest in the machines, according to the fairground's website.
