Local association hosts festival and tractor show

The Jessamine County Fair grounds hosted 150 to 200 tractors this past weekend for the Annual Fall Festival and Tractor Show.

The tractor show, which is always on the third week of September, is hosted by the Jessamine County Antique Farm Equipment Association. It has occurred for the past 29 years, and three years ago, it began featuring craft vendors.

“We love to see this grow,” club Secretary Stephanie Moses said.

Harmon Barker, a lifetime member of the association, said though he really enjoys riding the tractors, but there’s more to it than that.

“My favorite part is talking to people,” Harmon said.
