The 21st annual Field Days, 2013, was a salute to Case tractors. Hundreds of visitors came to Park Rapids to see the tractor parade. The annual event is put on by the Park Rapids Antique Tractor & Engine Club. A 1949 Case VA was raffled off. Visitors got demonstrations of technology that time didn't forget and kids got an early taste of the sights and sounds of yesteryear.
