Join the Franklin County Farm Bureau Young Leaders their second Touch-A-Tractor Event. The event will be held across from McDonald’s in West City. The event will start immediately following the Rend Lake Water Festival Parade. Farm implement dealers from throughout the area will have several items on display. It is the perfect opportunity to bring the kids and get up-close and personal with some of the farm machinery that you see traveling the roads this time of year.Return to event list.
Along with the Touch-A-Tractor event the Farm Bureau is also having the 2nd Annual Antique Tractor Drive Josh Odom Memorial. The tractors will leave from the Rend Lake Plaza at 10:30 a.m. and return later. Their travels will take them across Rend Lake Dam and through the country side around Rend Lake. If you are out and see them traveling please be courteous and enjoy the machinery.
These antique tractors will be back on display for a short time after the tractor drive at the Rend Lake Plaza so stop and compare the “old” to the “new” machinery. It will give everyone a sense of how things used to be done and how far we have come in improving farming today.
