The Prairie Tractor and Engine Society is a dream come to life for six southern Alberta gentlemen with a penchant for the past and an interest in early agricultural machinery. Founded in 1982, the museum is home to hundreds of lovingly rebuilt and refurbished antique farming machines. Tractors, binders, threshers, combines, and dozens of other pieces of equipment are on display at this extraordinary facility, and many of them get their engines fired up for the Parade of Power, held at the museum each August.
