The seventh annual show will begin this Friday at 8 p.m with the first tractor pull and then again on Saturday at 9 a.m. with various festivities for residents of all ages.
Admission is free and activties include: women’s skillet throw, farm equipment demonstrations, tractor and lawnmower pulls, wrench toss, egg tote and viewing of a bevy of vintage tractors (1960 or older).
“There’s something for everyone,” said Randy Tallent of the Murray County Saddle Club. “We want everyone to come out and have a good time.”
