Tractor enthusiasts, from farmers to little kids love tractors of all kinds.  At the historic Dollinger Family Farm in Channahon, IL, tractors are yours for the seeing during this annual event.  Fred Lestina, retired band teacher, keeps vintage gasoline engines running, while huge steamers run by owners Joe Martin and Tom Runty prowl the grounds of the farm, belching smoke and tooting their high pitched 'hello.'  Children ride the P & J steam train and take time to pet the bunnies and feed the ponies.

For the 49th year, the Will County Threshermen invite the public to share the excitement of the threshing event.  Food and concessions available as well.
