A crowd of onlookers gathered at the Lake Metroparks Farmpark in Kirtland, Ohio, for the annual fall festival that celebrates the rich agricultural heritage of the area, according to the Kirtland News-Herald.

The 21st Annual Fall Harvest Festival & Antique Tractor & Farm Engine Show brought area residents together to celebrate local food and fare. Among the many events were cider pressing, pony rides, plowing shows and grain threshing demonstrations, reported the news source.

Several participants brought their favorite used farm equipment to the show, including a 1939 John Deere Model L tractor that a group of children crawled on and rode around the grounds of the event.

"It was made in the late '50s. It cuts grass along highways," Doug Carter, the owner and a Huntsburg Township resident, told the News-Herald. "This one traveled 50 mph."

There were also bluegrass bands, a three-acre corn maze and samples of apple butter and other local favorites at the show.

The Burton Tractor Club put on the event, which serves as the regional tractor show and is designed to generate interest for the used vehicles, according to Yesterday's Tractor.
