The vendors are always interesting, but I had the most fun watching the crowd. As I shot video of the place, I started noticing little vignettes all around me. A couple of friends looking at a tractor here, a father showing his son a truck there, a couple photographing the displays, a group of tractor enthusiasts rebuilding an old Model "H". There were little stories all around me, and I began building a narrative in my imagination. They all came down to this: a sense of shared experience and community, families sharing fun and the timelessness of passing the torch from one generation to another.
