"So far we’ve got about 50 tractors lined up that we didn’t see last year," Walter Neal of the Southern Maryland Antique Power Association, told the news source. "It’s a day that’s all about educating the younger kids while also reminding some of the older folks like me of old tractors we all saw growing up."

The Southern Maryland Antique Power Association, the organizer for the event, is a group of local tractor enthusiasts who hold shows in order to celebrate their favorite farm equipment and the heritage behind it, according to the organization's website.
