The town of Rockford, Michigan, gave local residents a reason to be happy about the coming of fall with the annual celebration of the Antique Tractor Show, according to the Rockford Independent.
Participants and spectators lined the grounds at the 35th annual Harvest Fest, which opens each year with the tractor show. Local residents brought their favorite used farm equipment to the event, reported the news source.
"I've got an antique tractor and... it started out with just a few of us guys and now has really grown to where we have a nice variety," Pete Kruer, owner of a local hardware store, told the Independent. "This year, it really went to the next level and took off. We got a lot of interest and a lot of traffic."
A large green John Deere tractor was seen pulling young children around the grounds, as Kruer let the kids take slow rides on his favorite vehicle.
The Harvest Fest celebrates the end of the growing season and the impending harvesting of the crops for local farmers, along with providing children with a chance to learn more about agriculture, according to the event website.
