Club hosts antique tractor run in Perryville

PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) -

The River Hills Antique Tractor Club Run isn't just a tractor run, its a fun and relaxing way to enjoy the scenic hills and valleys of Perry County.

There were 166 antique tractors from a dozen states that drove about 30 miles through the county. Most of the tractors were over 40 years old and older.

Jerry Davis, co-organizer of this event, owns a business selling farm supplies in Perryville. 

This year, he says sales have been tough because of the extreme drought.  

He says this is way to just have fun and enjoy the reasons getting into the farming business to begin with, even if some of the crops don't look their best.

Everyone paid an admission charge to be part of the run. There was a fish fry afterwards.

Davis expects to raise about $10,000 in which he says he will put back into the community with Christmas presents for area kids and other charities.
