With Farm Tractor Pull


The Waterman Lions Summerfest and Antique Tractor & Truck Show is always held on the third Saturday in July at Waterman Lions Park in Waterman, IL. There is no admission, and there is no charge for most events. This is a family oriented affair that offers something for everyone. The next show will be on Saturday, July 16, 2016.  


Come join us for a day of affordable family fun in the park. All kinds of kid's entertainment. Live music. Crafter/Flea market. Petting zoo. Train rides. Pedal pull. Tractor pull. Tractor/truck parade. Trophy awards. Lions draw down raffle. Lions food concession. And many other attractions. Starts at 6 a.m. with breakfast. And ends late evening after a fireworks show and live bands by the beer garden. See the 2016 schedule on the events page.
