Agricultural equipment will be one of the features at a celebration put on by Virginia's Heritage Farm Museum in the state's Loudoun county.
According to the Loudoun Independent, the event, dubbed Tractorpalooza, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on January 9 at Claude Moore Park, which is located in Sterling. Both model and antique tractors will be there for viewing, and participants in the festival will get the chance to take wagon rides.
In December, the museum unveiled a new exhibit that highlights what life was like on a family farm back in 1909. The museum also features an exhibit that covers 250 years of agricultural history in the area.
Along with the history exhibits, the museum will feature a toy farm equipment exhibit, which will be on display until January 17. The paper said the items were donated by Philip and Wanda Marshall in 2006 and now make up an integral part of the museum's toy collection.
According to the Virginia Farm Bureau, agriculture is the state's biggest and oldest industry. The state has 47,600 farms, which encompass about 8.6 million acres.
