The Wellington Times reports the Tractor Pull is attracting interest from farmers throughout the country; tractors of every make and size will participate, with John Deere tractors well represented. "We have had interest from Australia wide for this and there will also be a mini tractor pull," said John Edwards, the fair's organizer.
The event routinely draws around 10,000 people every year to Wellington, according to event organizers. Aside from the tractor events, the fair allows tradespeople to sell their goods. "More than 100 stallholders will sell new products and swap meet stalls can pack up to 200 varieties so you'll be amazed by the goods people can buy and swap," Edwards affirmed.
The Wellington Fair will also help raise money for local charities, who will have stalls at the fair where they "make plenty of money," Edwards said. "We're very happy they are involved in the event."
