Pumpkinpalooza Tractor and Agriculture Show
The Tractor and Agriculture Show is an exciting new feature at the fifth annual Pumpkinpalooza community-wide event. Antique and vintage tractors, horse-drawn farm equipment and implements, and contemporary machinery will be on display in Walter A. Wood Park on Saturday, September 21 from 9 to 3.
The Walter A. Wood Reaping and Mowing Company made wooden horse-drawn farm equipment right here in our town from 1865 to 1924, and sold machinery to farmers on Hoosick and as far away as the Middle East and Russia.
It was Wood’s company that made Hoosick Falls a boomtown in the 19th century, so it is particularly appropriate for a Tractor and Agriculture Show to be a part of Pumpkinpalooza 5, the major annual Hoosick Falls event. Following his lead, many other businesses came into town, bringing people and money with them. Because of this, the Wood Company is often credited with building Hoosick Falls back in the day.
Kevin O’Malley is organizing this event, and is looking for folks from Hoosick and the surrounding communities to enter their equipment in the show. He is interested in people showing all different makes and models and years, but most especially, he is hoping for vintage Walter A. Wood equipment.
Best-in-Show prizes will be awarded for old and new equipment. For more information or to register, call Kevin at 518-894-5035, or email him at [email protected].
