Annual Threshing Bee

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Tractors and steam engines pulled into Osborn Park for Huntley Project's Annual Threshing Bee.

The annual event brings in steam and stationary engines from Antique Tractor Club members all over the state. Most of the engines are antiques.

The event also had family-friendly activities like a Kiddie Train and food testing. There were also threshing demonstrations throughout the day with many displays of different kinds of machines.

"You can take the kid out of the country but you can't take the country out of the kid. For those kids that grew up on a farm and they want to experience these old tractors and stuff like that, we've got them here. We've got them all here," said Allen Iverson, a Antique Tractor Club Board Member

Organizers say the event will also be held tomorrow from 10 AM to 4 PM.
