Region 8 tractor show pulls all types of machines

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The 3rd Annual Antique Tractor Show in Greene County brought out international harvesters of all types.

The show was sponsored by the Bono Antique Tractor Club and was held at Crowley's Ridge College. Other clubs took advantage as well to enjoy a sunny afternoon to show off their pride and joy.

The show featured everything from John Deere tractors to McCormick Farmall's to Ford 5000's. Keith Fielder is a tractor enthusiast and says the event is based on trying to promote interest in the antique tractors.

Fielder also says children were able to test their skills in the tractor pull. Most of the tractors are also showcased at local county fairs.
