An added attraction at this year’s Historic Farm Days in Penfield is a twilight tractor drive. The drive rolls along rural areas north of Penfield.
The annual show opens today (Thursday) and runs through Sunday in Champaign County.
The tractor drive will depart the grounds of the I&I Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Club at 6 p.m. and return prior to nightfall.
I&I official John Fredrickson told 94.1 WGFA listeners the tractor drive is a popular attraction at the biennial Half Century of Progress Show in Rantoul, which is also sponsored by the club.
"One of the members suggested it," Fredrickson said. "We really don't have any entertainment on Thursday night. We thought it would be a fun idea.”
