Tractor, engine fans will gather in Montour

    MONTOUR FALLS—Have you ever seen a tractor pull competition? How about a tractor parade or a tractor barrel roll?
    The 21st Annual Antique Tractors & Engines Show in Montour Falls will have those events this weekend. All proceeds are donated to the Jerry Lewis Foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Organizer Frank Johnson said last year the tractor show raised $15,700, the most they have ever raised.
    The tractor and engines show is July 1 to 3, located on Route 14, south of the Human Services Complex in Montour Falls. Parking and admission are free. Johnson said the event would have some 50 tractors. He added there will also be about 75 flea market merchants set up during the weekend. The Bluegrass Campers will provide music throughout the event as well.
    All three days start at 7 a.m. with the opportunity to buy breakfast. On Friday, there is a tractor pull at 11 a.m.; people driving tractors compete in pulling a heavy object the farthest. Games for children will be offered at 2 p.m., followed by the tractor parade at 3 p.m. The day ends with the Freedom Village Singers at 7 p.m.
    There will be another tractor parade at 11 a.m. and a tractor pull at 1 p.m. on Saturday, followed by various events throughout the day. The tractor barrel roll is at 3 p.m.; drivers will push two barrels into a square-shaped space using just the front two tractor wheels. At 4 p.m., there will be an auction of donated items; all proceeds go the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Country bands will play in the evening, from 7 to 11 p.m., including the Cowenesque Valley Boys.
    On Sunday, the event will offer a church service with bluegrass music at 8 a.m., followed by another tractor parade at 9 a.m. There will also be a tractor pull “for fun” at 10 a.m. Children will have their own chance at a pull, with the pedal tractor pull at 1 p.m. The weekend ends with a raffle drawing at 3 p.m.
