And children can take a seat in an old-time McCormick Farmall tractor for a photo opportunity, courtesy of Ronald Hammond, or climb into Matt McGraw’s 1924 Ford Model T Depot Hack.
For a couple of hours from late morning into early afternoon a stilt-walking scarecrow will be on hand. There will be a short dance performance by Supreme Perfection Dance Studio. All through the day, classic hits from “the Good Old Days” will be played by Ken Souza, KJ Tunes.
