John Deere toy tractor featured at Ohio event

Posted by Green Fun Store on 8/24/2010
A John Deere toy tractor was recently featured during Marietta, Ohio's Waterford Fair.

According to the Marietta Times, the small John Deere replica gave children attending the fair the chance at earning prizes. Their contest mirrored one being held nearby, where larger pieces of farm equipment were engaged in tractor pulls.

Dennis Martin, vice president of the board that oversees the fair, told the paper that keeping the event focused on children is one of the goals of those in charge. About 75 kids took part in the miniature tractor pull, which was put on by the Waterford High School FFA.

"That's why we're here. This is all for the kids in this community," Martin said.

Along with tractor pulls, fairs like this one held in Ohio often feature a variety of community-based events. For example, parades are often a popular feature, as are allowing local eateries to feature some of their culinary offerings.

FFA contests are yet another popular feature, as young people take what can be a year's worth of work and pit it against their counterparts from other areas.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19930520-ADNFCR
