Tractor fans to show their stuff

WAKARUSA — Tractors of all colors, makes and models will line the streets of downtown Wakarusa Saturday, Oct. 19.

Free registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with the show running from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Local non-profit groups will offer biscuits and gravy, doughnuts and cider and lunch.

“Over 60 tractors participated in 2012,” committee member Steve Shively said. “So we hope to reach the 100 mark this year.”

Awards will be given in the following categories: Vintage to 1949; 1950 to 1954; 1955 to 1959; 1960 to 1969; 1970 to present; Garden Tractor and People’s Choice.

The People’s Choice tractor will be featured on the 2014 Wakarusa Tractor Show T-shirt.

A limited number of the  “2013 Wakarusa Tractor Show” T-shirts will be available for purchase at the show.  Tractors and Trucks from Weaver Ag & Lawn and McCormick Motors will also be on display.

Along with the Wakarusa Tractor Show, downtown Wakarusa will have its pumpkin tree, decorated lampposts and downtown shops. The tractors will “parade” out of town, around the downtown square and past Miller’s Senior Living at 2 p.m.

Parking and unloading of tractors can take place at the Wakarusa Missionary Church and NorthWood Middle School parking lots.
