The South Plains Antique Tractor Association is getting ready for its annual Antique Tractor Show.
The show is set for Oct. 14-15 at the Fiber Max Center for Discovery, 1121 Canyon Lake Drive in Lubbock.
Gordon Graves, current president of the association, said this is at least the 20th year of the show.
There will be 50 to 60 antique tractors on display including some from association members’ collections – including Graves’ – and those that are already at the museum.
Admission is free, though donations are accepted.
The event will include food trucks, homemade ice cream, Western Equipment will provide water, and there will be a raffle for a toy pedal tractor. The raffle will be at 3 p.m. that Saturday (Oct. 15).
Proceeds from the raffle and from donations will be presented to the Fiber Max Center for Discovery for improvements to the museum. Graves said the association typically gives $9,000 to $10,000 to the museum each year.
People typically come from all over for the show, Graves noted. Last year, there were people from Iowa, people from Artesia, New Mexico and people from all over the South Plains.
This event is open to people of all ages. Event hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 14 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 15.
The Fiber Max Center for Discovery is located on E. Broadway in Lubbock right next to Mackenzie Park, Graves noted.
