Tractor Parade Highlight Of Farmers’ Museum Fest

ANNUAL EVENT LURES ENTHUSIASTS

Tractor Parade Highlight

Of Farmers’ Museum Fest

The first day of The Farmers’ Museum annual two-day Tractor Fest is winding down toward 5 o’clock, but the weekend’s highlight is yet to come: the tractor parade, which begins at noon Sunday on the museum grounds. Above, three members of the Central NY Antique Tractor Club, from left, Jim Price, Homer; Tom Bassett, Syracuse, and Duane Arnold, Kirkville, discuss the merits of Bassett’s relatively rare wide-front 1951 Case tractor, which he picked up a few years ago at a bean farm outside Erie, Pa.   The company made 130,000 of the narrow-front model, but only 4,900 of the wide-front ones ~ the front wheels lining up with the back ones allowed the machine to straddle rows of vegetables,  Inset, dad Tony Capraro of Laurens brought son Myles, 4 months old, to his first (but likely not his last) tractor fest, along with other members of the Capraro-Beers clan from the Laurens-Mount Vision area.   The fest is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
