Fort Wayne Farm Show kicks off today

John Boers gets up for the Fort Wayne Farm Show – early.

The 56-year-old retiree traveled Tuesday from the Kalamazoo, Mich., area to attend the 25th annual three-day agricultural expo at Memorial Coliseum that ends Thursday.

Boers was among the first to arrive on the show's kickoff day. The farming enthusiast made a two-hour drive to make it in time as the doors swung open at 9 a.m.

"I don't stay at a hotel because I just come down for one day," said Boers, adding the show takes him back to his younger days. "I used to help my stepfather on his farm. I love it."

Organizers expect more than 30,000 people to attend the farm show, which features 400 exhibits, organizations and displays.
