Fred Gebhardt, of Kilgore Mercantile & Music, has announced a “Tractors, Trucks & Fun” event to be hosted by Kilgore Main Street and held in historic downtown Kilgore at the start of next month.

“Calling all antique tractor enthusiasts. Saturday, June 6, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Kilgore Main Street brings ‘Tractors, Trucks & Fun’ to the streets of downtown Kilgore,” read Gebhardt’s announcement.

“Much of downtown will be blocked off for antique tractors, antique oilfield trucks, and show cars. Harvest Moon Countrygrass band will perform live. There will be tractor games, a hayride, a raffle and more. The big event will be the tractor parade. All of the restaurants will be open ready to serve you. The event is FREE to both participants and guests, so bring your antique tractor or show car to the Kilgore First Baptist Church parking lot by 9 a.m. and we’ll get you registered. Mark your calendar for June 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for ‘Tractors Trucks and Fun.’”
