Ixonia Vintage Tractor Expo continues to grow

June 6, 2013 | 0 comments

The third annual Ixonia Vintage Tractor Expo was termed a huge success by organizers who say the event continues to grow each year.

According to Curt Pernat, one of the organizers of the event, it just keeps getting larger with more tractors and pieces of equipment on display, more flea-market vendors and more activities.

While they have not yet out-grown the Firemen's park where they host the event, he said for next year's event they plan to provide more off-site parking for trucks and trailers to allow more parking area for visitors.

This year the Massey Family Collectors of Wisconsin hosted its fifth state show at the event including an evening banquet in Ixonia.

Pernat said the Massey collectors had 67 tractors on display and there were another 109 other brands of tractors on display.

In addition there were numerous brands of garden tractors on display and the Rock County Pullers garden tractor pull had over 120 hooks for the event.

The show included three separate tractor parades with many participants and spectators.

Another parade from the south included 16 tractors whose owners made the 22-mile trek to the show.

On Saturday evening another special parade provided the opportunity for operators of 24 tractors to enjoy the scenic countryside in the Pipersville area.

Pernat said it was a great opportunity for those from out of the area, including many of the Massey exhibitors, to see the farming area around Ixonia.

He said the flea market continues to grow and the opportunity to utilize the space inside the firemen's hall meant they could include the special miniature farm display by John Klettke and the large train set-up provided by Harvey Ziemer of Watertown.

The Massey collectors also had numerous smaller collector items on display there.

Profits from the event were for the benefit of the local food pantry and for the Honor flight.

The Vintage Tractor Club is already making plans for next year's event. They are also in the process of organizing a bus load of spectators along with many antique tractor owners to take part in the tractor drive across the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan on the weekend after Labor Day.

Tractor driving participants hope to break a Guinness record for the number of tractors in a parade.
