Thousands of people are expected to gather in Horicon this weekend to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the John Deere lawn-and-garden tractor. The model 110 tractor was first made at John Deere Corp.'s Horicon Works factory in 1963. It is a miniature version of a regular tractor, with attachments that include a plow for planting.
