The Antique Tractor Show, hosted by the Charleston Antique Tractor and Engine Society, hopes to attract record crowds by holding its first show at Cypress Gardens.
The event is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.
“Tractor shows are popular so we are thrilled to welcome this event,” Cypress Gardens Manager Heather Graham said. “We hope to draw the regulars who follow and attend these types of shows, as well as attract some new faces who want to take advantage of being able to browse the free tractor exhibits while enjoying all of the excitement Cypress Gardens has to offer.”
The show features well preserved, historic tractor models that worked Lowcountry land over a century ago. Highlights include Hit and Miss Engines, Flywheel Power and an exhibit featuring the largest diesel engine in South Carolina.
General admission includes access to the Antique Tractor Show and all Cypress Gardens park favorites, including the swamp boat ride, hiking trails, butterfly house, Heritage Room exhibit, reptile house and aquarium.
