KNIGHTSEN -- Gleaming classics and hot rods as well as tractors -- yes, tractors -- will be on display this weekend at Knightsen's annual festival.
Knightsen Days Car & Tractor Show will take place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 6 along Knightsen Avenue, where people will be showing off their prized wheels, including antique farm equipment -- most of which was used in the Knightsen area -- dating back to the World War II era.
In addition to other exhibitors, the free event also will include members of the Northern California Kit Car Club who will bring replicas of vehicles they've assembled.
All participants will have a chance to win trophies and plaques that will be awarded in various classes.
The town's original 1940 Chevrolet fire engine also will be on display.
A DJ will play music spanning decades of oldies-but-goodies, and a Mexican children's dance group will perform.
Vendors will sell handcrafted items and food. Members of the county's Special Weapons and Tactics Team will mingle with the public and county Emergency Medical Services personnel will demonstrate CPR techniques.
Knightsen Volunteer Firemen's Association will use the proceeds from raffle ticket sales to support its annual tradition of buying apples and candy for children at Christmas, when Santa delivers the goods to students at Knightsen School.
