A day of fun at the High River Ag grounds and The Call of the West Museum Saturday June 15, was another big hit.

The day kicked off with the Vintage Tractor Pull Competition.

Competitors brought tractors from their collection that were over 50 years old, in a challenge to see which rig was able to haul a weighted load, the furthest distance.

Competitors tractors were divided up into different weight classifications, and featured a variety of different manufacturers.

Seven different weight classifications were featured, from tractors ranging from 4,000-12,000 pounds.

While the rain made the track a little bit more difficult for the tractors to hold onto, all competitors were able to complete their runs succesfully.

The day ended with a series of Model-T races around the track.
