Fans of the John Deere company and their farm equipment are congregating in Baraboo, Wisconsin, where the Badger Steam and Gas show will take place for local residents to enjoy, according to the Portage Daily Register.

John Deere enthusiasts lined up for the event, donning green and yellow clothing in support for the agricultural giant. The grounds for the show consist of a 146-acre plot that is set up like a city for the members of the tractor club, reported the news source.

"The reason I like them is we grew up with them (as kids)," Art Woodward, Badger Steam and Gas member, said, standing next to his 1936 Model B. "And they are my life, I guess you could say."

Visitors will be treated to an agricultural display, as many different models of used tractors, antique vehicles and new John Deere equipment will be showcased, along with several exhibits that explain the history behind the brand and its influence, according to the Register.

The Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club will be running exhibits and vendor stands that feature barn and tractor quilts, old kitchen items, aprons and a historical society display of women's hats, according to the organization's website.
