Exhibits will include collections of flywheels, hit and miss engines, water pumps, vintage pedal tractors, antique cars and farm equipment.

Competitions for adults will include tractor pulls, barrel races and a blind race. Children can participate in pedal-powered tractor races, an old-fashioned game of needle-in-a-haystack or a rooster-crowing contest.
