According to a John Deere and Company press release, kids recently had the opportunity to learn about a day in the life of John Deere customers at the sixth annual “Learn and Play Day” held at the John Deere Pavilion.

This year, more than 400 kids were in attendance according to a KLJB article, learning and playing the day away with a variety of activities at their disposal. Kids were given the opportunity to test their driving skills in a battery-powered Gator obstacle course, or imitate a tractor pull with pedal powered tractors. Other activities included a crafting center, a petting zoo, and a construction zone where kids were able to test toy construction equipment in sand.

Kristen Veto, John Deere Pavilion Assistant Manager, spoke about the event in the KLJB article, saying, "The kids are learning what it's like to have a day in the life of one of our customers - ranging from our farmers to our construction workers to our forestry - and they're getting to learn and have fun at the same time."

Adults were welcomed to explore a variety of agriculture-related booths from several organizations including the Rock Island Farm Bureau, Rock Island 4H & Extension, Quad City Botanical Center, Fischer’s Honey Farm, and Country Corner.

The future of John Deere enthusiasts were in attendance at the sixth annual “Learn and Play Day” where kids had the opportunity to imitate the everyday lives of John Deere customers according to the Deere press release and KLJB article.
