Jasper — Today is the last day of the 26th Annual Antique Tractor and Engine Show at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs.
The event began on Thursday, April 3, and will end at 5 p.m. today. Come see a wide variety of antique tractors and farming equipment that reflect 200 years of rural American history.

Exhibits include collections of flywheels, hit and miss engines, water pumps, vintage pedal tractors, antique cars and farm equipment.
Competitions for adults include tractor pulls, barrel races and a blind race. Children can participate in pedal-powered tractor races, an old-fashioned game of needle-in-a-haystack or a rooster-crowing contest.
