10th Annual Southwest Wisconsin Tractor Ride and Equipment Show
Now in their 10th year the 2019 Southwest Wisconsin Tractor Ride and Equipment Show is sure to be enjoyed by young and old. Saturday, July 27- Fennimore area farmers will once again bring out their favorite tractor or equipment and travel the scenic back roads for a pleasurable ride through the area countryside and rustic roads.
The starting point of this year’s tractor ride will begin at John Collins’ Shop, 1650 LaFollette Street, in the Fennimore Business Park. The event is free and open to everyone. Don’t have a tractor – no problem, there are several wagons available to ride on. Some wagons offer seats and others offering seating on straw bales much like the popular hay rides which were once popular summer events.
Come early by 8 a.m. and enjoy coffee, milk and rolls. Don’t be late as the tractors role out on their drive by 9 a.m. sharp! This year’s tractor ride will meander east toward Montfort along country roads North of Hwy 18. Their destination is the Montfort Fire Station where a lunch will be available for purchase. All proceeds from the meal will benefit the Montfort Fire Department just as they have benefited other non-profit organizations the previous 9 years.
After lunch an auction of assorted toys and other items will be held after 1 p.m. The return trip will cross Hwy 18 and travel on back country roads south of Hwy 18. The ride will end once again at Collins’ shop at approximately 2 p.m.
All models old and new are encouraged to participate. SMV signs are required on all tractors and equipment. Tractors/equipment may join the group anywhere along the route available online www.fennimore.com Note: the organizers are not responsible for accidents.
