The fourth annual Antique Tractor, Truck and Farm Equipment Show will be held at the Waterloo Farm Museum, located in Grass Lake Michigan, according to the Jackson Patriot.

A number of antique tractors will be featured at the event, as the older John Deere models will be scattered around the grounds for visitors to admire and investigate. Museum officials have noted that the event will be appropriate for all ages, and the exhibits will be hands-on, the news source reported.

"A lot of people have never seen an antique tractor or the way grandpa had to plow his fields and bring in his corn," Butch Richmond of Stockbridge, one of the event organizers, told the Patriot. "We want to show people what farming was like back then."

Museum workers and willing residents will be donning the attire of the past, to enhance the atmosphere of the event, reported the news source.

The Waterloo Farm Museum provides visitors with a unique view of the history of agriculture within the region, as workers don the original attire while performing accurate depictions of past farmers, according to the museum's website.
