Near and 'Deere' to his heart
Antique Tractor Pull competition organizer Vern McKeller is an avid collector of vintage John Deere tractors. Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino hosts the two-day event Aug. 4 and 5 during the Cloverdale Blueberry Festival.
The two-day Antique Tractor Pull at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino (Aug. 4-5), originally a stand-alone event, has grown.
Tractor drivers from across the Fraser Valley are bringing their antique tractors to Cloverdale for a heavy-duty competition.
Over two days, competitors driving antique, pre-1960 tractors will square off in 10 different weight categories. Each tractor is hooked up to a sled full of weights, which rises higher and higher in the air as the tractor moves further forward.
Keller, also a member of the Cloverdale Legion, collects vintage John Deere tractors and classic cars.
Competition runs from 1-3 p.m. bot days. It's open to spectators of all ages, no charge. 604-308-2443.
