Tough Tuggin': Small Town Hosts Kansas Summer Nationals Tractor Pull
The sound of roaring motors causes the ground to rumble as visitors approach the grass covered field situated on the outskirts of McLouth, Kansas. Crowds of people hurry from their cars with blankets, coolers, and lawn chairs in hand. Everyone is required to stop, pay, and have a florescent green band placed on their arms before entering the area.

This annual event brings out huge crowds of people including teens, the elderly and young families; there is excitement in the air for everyone to enjoy.
