We shared the fairgrounds with the Antique Farm Day and Tractor Pull event, which featured a 1958 John Deere tractor.

The crowd enjoyed the Tractor Pull!

Meanwhile, inside, Brenda Rees, Chair of the Walton County Heritage Museum Board of Trustees, represented both the Museum and her company, Shaping Florida.

Rev. Tyrone Broadus, Walton County Heritage Association Trustee, and Ken Little, President of the Walton County Heritage Association, reviewed the Walton County timeline.

Diane Merkel, Walton County Heritage Museum Trustee, admired the display by Gail Meyer of the City of Fort Walton Beach Heritage Park and Cultural Center (Indian Temple Mound Museum).

Ken Little visited the Walton County Art League display.

Marge Crawford of Historic Point Washington also represented the Friends of Eden Gardens State Park.

Scott Clary, who is a Museum Trustee, displayed some items from his extensive postcard, photograph, and bottle collection.

Terry Dawkins, a Walton County Heritage Association trustee, dressed appropriately for the day.

One of the most extensive displays was that of the Tivoli Historical Society. They are working to preserve the history of all black schools that were in the county.

Art Dees of WZEP-AM explained how radio equipment has evolved from the days of tubes and reels and carts.
