John Deere Horicon Celebration Planned This Summer

(Horicon) The Dodge County Fairgrounds will be the site of this summer’s “Fifty Years of John Deere Hydro Power,” an anniversary celebration of all Horicon-built Deere equipment.  The festivities will include a tractor parade and displays of unique John Deer memorabilia from collectors nationwide, including one-of-a-kind machinery and prototypes plus vintage snowmobiles.  The family-friendly event will allow kids an opportunity to dig in the dirt, see the equipment up close and even learn from a working blacksmith. Factory tours will also be scheduled throughout the weekend with shuttles transporting attendees to and from the Horicon facility. Collectors are encouraged to exhibit their own memorabilia. The “John Deere Fifty Years of Hydro Power” event runs July 27th through the 29th at the Dodge County Fairgrounds with free parking and free admission.
