In fact, Lilley has done more than that, as his equipment has been used to power some of the displays located at the event, which is held every year in September. According to the Southern Berks News, he will bring a couple of his green-and-gold machines along this time around, including a 1957 John Deere 820.
That tractor will be used to power a saw mill at the fairgrounds Joanna Furnace. Lilley also plans on using either a 1957 John Deere 520 or a 1941 Model G to power the Hay Creek Shingle Mill.
"The Hay Creek Festival is a great place to talk shop about engines and tractors and the association's Over-The-Hill-Gang is made up of a bunch of great guys," Lilley told the newspaper.
While some festivals may use gas or diesel-powered equipment for their displays, others go even further back in time. For example, Illinois' Will Count Threshermen's Association holds an event every year that features steam-powered equipment.
