The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and feature pedal tractors, semi-tractors, farm trucks, hit and miss motors, lawn and garden tractors in addition to the big tractors, antique tractors, newer tractors and implements.

John Deere will be the featured tractor this year, according to organizer Karen Hutchinson.

“We will be celebrating John Deere’s 175th anniversary,” Hutchinson said. “Raffle prizes and activities will be centered around John Deere.”

The raffle prizes will be available for viewing at BankORION in Cambridge. Raffle tickets may also be purchased there. The raffle itself will be held at 3 p.m. on that Saturday.

An adult and kid pedal tractor pull will be held beginning at 11 a.m. with the children participating first. There will be 18 classes for individuals, 0 to 65 years of age. Trophies and ribbons will be presented to the winners.

Pedal Power out of Washington will be in charge of the pedal pull.

Tractor games will follow the pedal pull. Five different games will be played. They include the slowest tractor, dress up game, drop the ball game, chain in the box game and one more. There will be three categories in the slowest tractor game.

Michlig Grain, Cambridge, will provide a corn box for children to play in.

There will be a variety of other children’s games. Prizes will be awarded.

Wristbands for children’s activities can be purchased between 8 and 11 a.m.

“Our major fundraiser to help sponsor the show each year will be to raffle a half-processed hog,” said Hutchinson. “If someone is not interested in the hog, they can donate it to a local food pantry or an active military family.”

Tickets for the hog are available from Hutchinson at 937-5859 or 945-2858. Tickets will also be available the day of the show.

On the day of the show, two other raffles will be held. A 50/50 raffle will be held with the group’s 50 percent being donated to Ron “Trog” Spence. The other raffle will benefit Ovarian Cancer Awareness. One of the committee members is a five year survivor.

Several local groups will be serving food throughout the day.

The Cambridge American Legion will be serving breakfast from 7 to 9 a.m. at their hall located behind Bella Pizza in downtown Cambridge.

The Cambridge Historical Society will be serving pull pork sandwiches, homemade cakes, pies and ice cream.
