Sunday was a fun day to have an inaugural tractor show. September 12th fall like weather was perfect! There was an occasional breeze to keep the temperature pleasant. The show location was situated in front of Williamsville’s old railroad depot and train museum.
The tractor show was held in companion with the town’s fall festival. Nick Menke organized the event, doing an outstanding job. 26 units were on display. There were some lawn and garden equipment and a vintage truck in the mix.
There was a nice assortment of Oliver, John Deere, Farmall, and Cub Cadet. A few notable pieces included a Farmall C demonstrator, a David Bradley tri trac, and a Shaw Du-all.
Nine of the participating tractors went on a short drive to get a little exercise.
All in all it was a great time to reconnect with old friends, make new friends, and most of all relax. Of course Carl Davis was able to relax more than others, the sure sign of a successful show.
Cody Vedder was the lucky winner of the raffle tractor. A Allis Chalmers WC. Congratulations to a first time tractor owner!
