A Thief River Falls man owns 200 tractors, toy tractors that is. Collectible tractor toys and models have been around since the 30s and this weekend they were a huge draw in Thief River Falls.

The Thief River Falls toy show is put on each year by collector Mark Aune. Mark began collecting when he was a kid and boasts more than 200 john deere tractor models in his collection. His love of tractors comes from growing up on a small grain and cattle farm.

Mark Aune said, "I just love this, I'm always around equipment I work outside, I see a tractor out in the field and it still makes me wish I was driving one, you just kind of get it in your blood and it just never ends, you know, it's exciting to be around this stuff."

Twelve vendors took part in the 2-day show.
