John Deere – Celebrating A Farming Tradition in Moline Illinois
I was in Molene Illinois this past weekend to announce Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam. While there I visited the John Deere Pavilion. The Pavilion is on River Rd. across from the I-Wireless Center and the attached Raddison hotel. The web-site says:
"The John Deere Pavilion was created as a celebration of the past, present and future of agribusiness. It has attracted guests from around the world and is recognized as the world’s most comprehensive agricultural exhibit.
John Deere’s dream of producing a superior self-scouring plow for the western farmer became a reality in 1848, with his first manufacturing plant located on the banks of the Mississippi River. This history-shaping development in agriculture is preserved and celebrated at the Pavilion. Interactive exhibits mingle with actual John Deere equipment, creating a unique, hands-on and climb-on experience for visitors."
I am posting a gallery of photos for you to see the exhibits and a few of the activities of my trip.
