Eighth Annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show

| September/October 2000

Farm Equipment show

21167 S. Seidner Avenue Escalon, California 95320

To have a forty acre playground filled with toys-'adult toys'-was the scene of the 8th annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show held Saturday and Sunday, April 15 and 16, in Tulare, California. The show featured 'Three Centuries of John Deere.'

Most of us had our bibs on and our sunscreen, because when you sit in the sun for two hours watching the tractor parade you need it. Then after lunch the auction started, which required more sunscreen and lasted for 3 ? hours.

Then it was time to change from our bibs to our tight-fitting jeans for the evening barbecue which was very delicious and spectacular, for they fed 2,000 people in 29 minutes. Now, that is being organized.

When Sunday rolls around, people are more relaxed. Breakfast is available, followed by a church service and a sing-time. Then out to another tractor parade. After lunch there is a tractor pull.

What a beautiful weekend to enjoy and to learn and help others learn. Here you see smiles, sincerity, and activity- all to make our show a success.
