Big Tractor Show Starts Saturday at Cornwell’s
The 4th of July is over, but there are still some great opportunities for another big slice of Americana. Cornwell's Turkeyville, U.S.A. puts the emphasis on "U.S.A" with their tribute to farming and the tractors and machinery which built this great nation!
In fact, Battle Creek was known for manufacturing farm machinery long before it was known as the Cereal City.
Cornwell's is teaming up with local tractor clubs like "Yesteryears", and others, for an exciting weekend for all ages starting this Friday, July 14th. You'll get to check out tractors from all over the states of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
250 or more tractors and equipment will fill the big field at Turkeyville and you can walk around and share with all the owners.
