JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Northeast Farm Toy show is back for its 23rd year.

Farm toys of all kinds were on display for the public at the Holiday Inn on Caraway Road in Jonesboro. 

 "A lot of people come here because as they were growing up on the farm they maybe had a certain tractor that they drove or owned," said event organizer Roger Gloe. "They can usually come here and find one and take it home as a collectible."

"We've got people that come to the show today from all the surrounding states too, as far away as Texas and Mississippi, Kentucky, so we got a good crowd today."

They toy show was held Friday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
