Vehicle shows scheduled for next two weekends


Community members are invited to the Old Car Festival on Sunday, where working vehicles built before 1943 will be on display from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It is organized by the Galt Area Historical Society as an annual fundraiser for the Rae House Museum.

The following weekend, another organization is holding a free event celebrating tractors and other gas engines.

The annual event, hosted by the local branch of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association, includes a tractor parade at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Oct. 5 and at 10 a.m. on Oct. 6.

Other activities include docent tours, live music and food for sale including pies by the slice. On both days, gates open at 9 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 and 1 p.m. Oct. 6.

Both events will be held at the historical McFarland Ranch, 8899 Orr Road.
