Visitors to the 31st show Sublette Farm Toy Show on Sunday were greeted with chilly temperatures.

Farm implements, trucks, utility vehicles, crafts and lots of toys were located throughout the village.

John Deere was the featured tractor during the 31st annual show, which appropriately shaded the town green for St. Patrick’s Day.

Farm toys and the tractor show weren’t the only things offered during the show, as items for sale ranged from toy tractors and combines to crafts to soldier figurines.

A solar car built by students at Illinois State University was on display. The ISU team, along with other teams across the country, raced through Sublette last year during the American Solar Challenge cross-country race.
