SCENES FROM SATURDAY

(Clockwise from upper Left)

Gary Worden, a collector of classic International tractors, fiddles with the voltage regulator on his Super A McCormick Farmall. He said he’s been bringing his tractors to Goessel for the past four or five years.

Griffin Opp, 5, from Denver, Colo., tries his best to steer a Farmall Super C that was restored by his grandfather.

Chase Auger, 4, from El Dorado, enjoys some time playing in one of three “wheatboxes” equipped with some earth-moving toys. His sister, Shelby, 10, is playing in the background.

A lineup of classic tractors slowly makes its way down Main Street during the morning parade. The parade also included a number of classic automobiles-and plenty of candy for the kids who lined the street.
