Antique tractors are all fired up for Red Deer’s annual Pioneer Days Festival at Sunnybrook Farm Museum.

Festival activities Aug. 17 and 18 include a tractor pull competition and tractor parade, pancake breakfast, silent auction, antique and collector car show, and toy displays.

Visitors can also check out the museum’s live farm animal exhibition, pioneer homesteading, threshing and field demonstrations.

A cowboy church service and home-made cookie walk will be held, along with a food concession, live musical entertainment, face painting, a bouncy castle, barrel train rides and children’s activities.

Admission is $5 per person and $15 per family for the event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

This year, the museum is hosting the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees as the group celebrates its centennial.

Sunnybrook Farm is located at 2879 Botterill Cres.
