Tractor shows may serve as a chance for families to bond over the farm equipment, as many times parents that come from an agricultural background wish to teach their children about their early life on a farm.

Crowds of all ages attended a tractor show that was held at the Henderson Country Fairgrounds in Kentucky. Over 43 models of the farm equipment were on display, and the attendees were given a history of the American-made vehicles, according to the Henderson Gleaner.
