Tractor Trek rolls out this weekend

McHenry County Farm Bureau and McHenry County Antique Farm Equipment Association are co-sponsoring their 16th annual “Tractor Trek” on Saturday, July 21.

The Tractor Trek will kick-off with a 7:30 am registration at Milky Way Park. The park is located at 300 Lawrence Rd, Harvard, IL 60033 (trailers can be parked on site). Drivers will need to stop at the registration booth for their name badges and meal tickets. The registration fee includes: a T-shirt, hat, coffee, water, donuts, ice cream, and lunch. Departure time for the Tractor Trek is 8:15 am and it will travel to Sharon Wisconsin and will loop back to Harvard for a nice lunch at the Moose Lodge. The afternoon route will include a brief parade through part of Harvard, a stop at Alten Farms, and will conclude with a short ride back into Harvard.

Proceeds raised from this event are donated to the Agriculture in the Classroom program, to promote agricultural awareness in McHenry County. We have also earmarked $500 to support McHenry County’s 4-H program.
