If it's mid-July, it's time for the annual antique tractor plow, tractor show and craft fair at Tabor Hall near Dorchester.
This year, the event will be today, July 16.
All visitors are welcome, as food and refreshments will be available inside Tabor Hall, with all the proceeds going to fix the hall, which hosts dances and receptions.
The famous antique tractor plow will begin at 2 p.m. in fields next to Tabor Hall, on County Road 1400, approximately four miles south of Dorchester.
Here is a summary of the schedule of events:
- Craft show at 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
- Food begins serving 11:00 a.m.
- Plowing will begin at 2:00 p.m.
- Tractors on display throughout the day
Organizer Larry Fuller has said the plowing event grew from a picnic at which a bunch of farm neighbors got together and used their old tractors to plow like they did years ago.
Shelley Bruha of Dorchester said it is important to hold this event because it encourages rural neighbors to come together and allows those who have old tractors to have a chance to work with them. “Everyone always has a good time,” Bruha said.
