According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, this week will see a three-day festival held at the campus of Cedar Valley TechWorks. The John Deere Fall Fest will feature tractors from various eras, along with some of the company's memorabilia.
Terry Johnston is the marketing and facilities manager for TechWorks. He told the paper he plans on bringing two of his own vintage tractors.
"For most of these tractors, you're kind of bringing them home, especially the older tractors from the '20s to the '60s, when they were all made in downtown Waterloo," Johnston told the Courier.
The event will feature a parade and tours of an assembly plant that produced John Deere tractors in Iowa. It will also give people a chance to meet the engineers who designed the green-and-gold machines.
While people gather this week in Waterloo, John Deere is moving forward with plans to open a museum there that will be dedicated to the history of the company's tractors and engines.
