~Fall Harvest Days~

We went to the Agriculture Center for The 28th Fall Harvest Days “Antique Engine & Tractor Show”!

Normally I would say this would not be my favorite craft show.

Nope, I never have seen a tractor parade, but it looks kinda fun. I know I'd enjoy exploring what's under all of those tents and the pretty mountain views and the friendly people.
Glad you enjoyed your day.

What a wonderful slice of Americana. I can see why you love it there. Hope all is well with this big storm and you are not affected.

Whoo Hoo, hometown America! I loved seeing the antique toy cars. It reminded me of a minature John Deere tractor that my brother had as a kid. He pumped those pedals and rode all over the place; no electric cars in our era! XOXO

Looks like a lot of fun! I love it!
That traffic light, never saw one up close like that, bigger than I thought!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I would not say this was something I would want to do...until I saw your photos. It looks like so much fun and that tractor parade...priceless! hugs, Linda

You make everything fun, Diane. I would have enjoyed the crafts and produce tables, for sure, the tractors, well.....I am sure the parade was cute. Hope this storm doesn't mess up too much. xo

DogsMom said...

To me that looks like heaven!
And you look like the weather was perfect too.

Um..no tractor parades in Southern California and I have no idea why not!! I have to check on that..what a shame! :)
Hugs,

We are headed for the country tomorrow to pick some apples. (I'm so excited. Just hope I don't forget my camera.)

Diane ~ I am chuckling as I write this. Every year Harrow has a fair and on the Saturday they have a parade. It has been said that the Harrow Fair is the longest parade in Ontario, Canada. Because it is maintly tractors ;-)

Jettie said...

Oh I love that bathtub trailer, and I can see one in my gardening future.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Mr. Art @ Home would LOVE a tractor parade, LOL!

I need to do some things a bit more unexpected. ;P

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Wow, that really looks like fun! I love those old car ride-on toys. Such good condition.

I've been to a tractor parade. I used to do a show in July and they had a tractor and car parade each year during the show.
How fun!!

It doesn't get any better than a tractor pull, huh? That's pretty cute (and a little scary.haha)

I have no clue how I landed here, in case you're curious.Maybe from Karen Zemek's blog.

CRAFTY STITCHERS said...

It looks like you had fun, I have never seen a tractor parade either. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Vee said...

A tub trailer...okay, I'm going to have to haul John over tomorrow to see all this great stuff. Looks like a fun day!

You kids are always up to something!!! I am guessing you did not pick this particular outing, but so glad you enjoyed it!! Love the blue tub!!

Della said...

My dad would have LOVED this! The red tractor you are standing by looks like his Allis Chalmers that I sold after he passed. My daddy loved tractors :)

Diane Writes said...

Hi namemate! I've never been to a tractor parade either. But hey, anything vintage is always cool to me. Coupled with friendly people to meet, it would surely be a great experience.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
