John Deere used tractors attract crowds at county fair

Posted by Green Fun Store on 2/15/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Held in Zanesville, Ohio every year, the Muskingum County Fair attracts people from all over the state who hope to catch a glimpse of the antique tractors and farm equipment on display. This year's fair was one the most popular in years, the Zanesville Times Recorder reports.

Paul Hindel was one many attendees at this year's event. Hindel was thrilled to be at the event and exclaimed "I've been to a lot of these since i was three or four." The 12-year-old said that while he was excited to check out all of the used tractors at the event, he was most impressed with one model in particular. "I like all trucks and tractors, but I like John Deere the best. I like the loud noises, and I'd like to do this someday," he affirmed.

Fans crowded the grandstand and track seats for the Truck Tractor and Semi Pull, one of the last - and most popular - events to close out the fair. Chad Young, a farmer who has attended the fair for years, said he has "been coming to the fair since I was little, and I try to come out every year if I can" because "it's the everyday farmer with their tractors and local guys doing this for fun" that make it worthwhile.

Rance Noce, a fan who caught the Semi Pull, summed up the event's appeal: "The tractor pull is about the fair itself; just the power of the tractors. They put on a good show every year."
