A annual event that is held in Delta Township, Michigan, allowed area residents to take a ride on and investigate many pieces of antique farm equipment that ranged from John Deere tractors to larger backhoes, according to the Lansing State Journal.

The entire area of the Sharp Park in Delta Township was full of John Deere tractors, tow trucks, delivery trucks, earth movers and construction vehicles, along with an abundance of small children who could not seem to get enough of the machinery, reported the news source.

"The whole point is for kids to get up close to vehicles that they wouldn't normally see and climb in them," Barbara Sherbo Kellogg, the township's recreation coordinator, told the Journal. "They get to honk the horns. They get to sit on the seat. They get to pretend they're driving."

There were also talking stations where the owners of the vehicles would give demonstrations and explain the intricate details of each of the trucks before the children would be given a ride, according to the Delta Township website.
