Tonganoxie man’s pink tractor to be displayed at Ag Hall of Fame

July 5, 2011

Harold Denholm’s famous pink tractor, painted in honor of his wife and breast cancer awareness, will be a part of Tractor Daze at The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame on Saturday.

The pink tractor, called Mom’s Tractor, was painted by Denholm and his son, Greg, to honor Harold’s wife, Aileen, who died from breast cancer in 2007.

The rumble, rumble of an antique tractor kicks off a day full of family fun that doesn’t end until the vroom- vroom of the last mud run competitor. From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Tractor Daze activities include an antique and classic tractor pull, lawn tractor pull, machinery and equipment displays, antique construction equipment demonstrations, antique truck display, kiddie pedal pull, miniature train rides, hay rides, farming demonstrations, a blacksmith, living history and more. The mud run starts at 4 p.m.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 5-16. Children younger than 5 and members get in free.

The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame is located just northeast of the I-70/K-7 interchange in Bonner Springs, two miles west of the Kansas Speedway. For more information call (913) 721-1075 or visit
