The 14th annual Antique Engine and Tractor Pull is Saturday, June 27, in Johnson City beginning at 9 a.m. Competition starts at 10 a.m.

Held every fourth Saturday in June, the pull is a fundraiser for the 4H and FFA clubs in Blanco and Hayes counties. It is hosted each year by the Johnson City Antique Engine and Tractor Club. Admission is by donation.

The event is held at the Blanco County Fairgrounds, 619 U.S. 281 North, and features pull competitions for tractors, lawn mowers, and trucks. First- and second-place trophies are given.

Also enjoy kiddie pulls, lawn mower barrel rides, and a variety of door prizes.

Truck pulls are broken into divisions: two-wheel and four-wheel gas trucks and two-wheel and four-wheel diesel trucks.

Lawn mower pulls are broken into horsepower divisions, while tractor pulls have weighted and non-weighted divisions for tractors made in or before 1965.

Vendors will sell concessions, including barbecue, hot dogs, and drinks.

Signage promoting social distancing and mask wearing will be posted throughout the fairgrounds to alert people how best to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Masks are not required.
