Antique tractors to chug along to weekend show
The Gillespie County Fair Grounds will come alive with the sights and sounds of old farm machinery when the 29th annual Hill Country Antique Tractor and Engine Show returns Friday and Saturday, June 7-8.
The show will be held at the Gillespie County Fair Grounds, just off State Highway 16 South and about two miles south of Fredericksburg’s Main Street.
Sponsoring the event will be the Hill Country Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Club.
Featured at this year’s show will be displays of antique machinery (some fully restored and fully operational) as well as exhibits of antique tractors and antique engines, a tractor pull competition, an antique tractor parade, farm machinery demonstrations, a blacksmith shop, vendors selling agriculture-related items, as well as food and drink concessions.
Also featured will be a kiddy pedal-powered tractor pull.
Price of admission is $6 for adults, with children under 12 getting in free. Exhibitors will get in for no charge, and parking is free.
