— For roughly 13 years, enthusiasts of antique and classic tractors have made their way to Barber’s Homestead Park in Westport to get together and look back at the history of agricultural transportation.

“There must be over 50 tractors here this year,” said Irwin Barber, who started the show as a way for local antique tractor owners to come together and show off their equipment while getting a chance to see what others may have.

“I started this as a local tractor show and it has just built up every year,” Barber said. “There is a variety of equipment, including a old combine and a 1927 grader.”

The event, which was held June 15-16 at Barber’s campground facility, included a tractor parade, food a refreshments and tractor and wagon rides.
