Farm Bureau’s Touch-A-Tractor Event This Weekend!
The Kane County Farm Bureau invites you and your family to Touch-A-Tractor, the annual farm-city community event, set for April 6 through April 8, 2018.
Kids can participate in hands-on activities, ride pedal tractors, shell corn, see farm animals and baby chicks, make their own music at the percussion string, take pictures with farm-themed backdrops, and play and sit in the seat of one of dozens of tractors. There will be a FREE Pedal Tractor Drawing for kids 8 and under – one entry per child.
Admission to Touch-A-Tractor is $5 per family or $2 per adult. Admission is free for children 18 and under. Funds will be used for college scholarships and agricultural literacy programs of the not-for-profit KCFB Foundation.
As part of our Harvest for ALL hunger relief effort, one additional entry to the FREE Pedal Tractor Drawing will be given to those who bring non-perishable food items to Touch-A- Tractor. Food items will then be donated to a local food pantry.
There will also be events such as face painting and book readings throughout the weekend.
The KCFB FOUNDATION will sell tickets for the 2018 Winner’s Choice Raffle, a 1965 Ford F100 Pick-Up Truck. The grand prize winner, announced at the 4-H Blue Ribbon Sale during the Kane County Fair, July 22, will choose from the 1965 F100 Ford Pick-Up Truck, or a John Deere X350 riding lawn mower, or $3,500 in cash.
Second prize will be $500 in groceries, third prize $500 in fuel, and fourth prize $250 in Kane County Farm Bureau Bucks. Tickets are $15 each, 2 for $25, or 5 for $50. The Winner’s Choice Raffle is the primary fundraiser for KCFB FOUNDATION college scholarships.
