Antique Tractor Pulls

The Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club is joining this year’s Crown of Maine Balloon Festival, offering some great additions to events at the Northern Maine Fairgrounds on Saturday, August 29. “We wanted to be a part of the festival both because it’s a great way to promote the agricultural heritage of the area, which is very important to us, and we wanted to help the festival grow,” said Cheryl Boulier. Thanks to that commitment, as well as the sponsorship of R.H. Foster Energy, there will be a busy afternoon of fun for the entire family that day. Come join in for this free, fun-filled afternoon for the whole family!
