The West Virginia State Farm Museum in Mason County will host its annual “Tractor Show and Games” Saturday, July 20, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. According to organizers, the day is about sharing an interest in old farm equipment and preserving West Virginia’s rural heritage.
Besides just showing the different models of tractors, the event will include a pedal tractor pull for the kids (and energetic adults), which will start at 9:30 a.m. The “big” tractor events begin at 1 p.m. and will include a barrel roll, slow race, drawbar/egg touch and blindfold race.
There are no entry or admission fees for any of the events. The Farm Museum’s cafeteria will be open for the day, and the public can also tour the grounds.
