If you and your little tike love heavy equipment and mighty machines, then you’ll have a blast at Oxford County’s tractor and truck pulls this season. For those who have never been to a pull, you can expect a great time. Join the crowds in the grandstands cheering as modified trucks and tractors test their limits by pulling large metal sleds with weights on them down a course. See competitors pull in classes according to weight, enjoy great food and have a fantastic time with the whole family!
EMBRO TRUCK AND TRACTOR PULL
Over the long civic holiday weekend, come out to the Embro Truck and Tractor Pull which boasts two days of fun, ten different weight classes and free admission for children under five. The Embro Truck and Tractor Pull is special because of the wide variety of pulls to see. The event boasts everything from horse pulls to modified tractors that will blow your mind.
Each year, proceeds go to a cause in the local community. Since 2011, The Embro Truck and Tractor Pull has put over $100,000 back into the community. You can rest assured your admission goes a long way.
The pull is for adults and children alike. On the Saturday night, children can enjoy bouncy castles and mega slides while adults watch intense competition. Stroll through the food vendors and visit some local groups including Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Woodstock, Oxford Milk Corporation and Oxford Junior Farmers. It’s bound to be a great time for all.
NORWICH OPTIMIST TRUCK N’ TRACTOR PULL
Entertainment comes in many forms at the Norwich Optimist Truck n’ Tractor Pull. The whole family will come alive with excitement as heavy machines face down against the heaviest of weights and pull them down the course. But there’s more – both nights feature live entertainment and a beer tent.
You won’t be able to pull yourself away from these great events.
