A crowd of several thousand Greater New Milford-area and regional visitors paid a visit Sept. 25-27 to the Connecticut Antique Machinery Association (CAMA) museum in Kent for the non-profit organization's 25th annual fall festival.

Mother Nature treated the three-day event to a mixed bag of good and bad. Yet Sunday's damp weather didn't dissuade folks from enjoying the display of restored antique machinery and motor vehicles from the American industrial and agricultural past.

"Our main focus is to educate the general public as to early industrial and agricultural methods," explains the CAMA Web site.
