Attendance was very good at the 40th annual Nebraska State Antique Tractor & Horse Plowing Bee west of Petersburg last Friday through Sunday, Aug. 26-28.
Total attendance for the weekend was estimated at nearly 2,000 people. Some came to Charlie’s Park for only a few hours, while others returned all three days.
Some 42 tractors arrived from Creston in a “Tractor Cade” to open the show on Friday evening, and nearly 200 people were served at the cream can supper.
Working farm demonstrations were held Saturday and Sunday, with plowing on Sunday afternoon.
