Antique tractor pulling is how tractor pulling first got started, although the tractors were just modern tractors at that time. As early as 1929, farmers began attaching their tractors to drags, and dragging it down a field to see who could pull it the furthest.  The Wainfleet Fall Fair's event is a celebration of that history
