I haven't been able to gather any further information. I've attempted to call B & B to confirm the location but only reach an answering machine.

I was able to take my wife to this Tractor Show/plow day along with my Massey 12G. The day was beautiful, temps around the mid 70's with a wonderful breeze and great soil conditions. This is the first show held by Terry, owner of B and B Tractors, and he hopes to make it an annual event. His eventual goal is an event that will rival the annual Denton show for turnout and he made an excellent start as a host.
For the comfort and enjoyment of the guests, Terry provided tents, tables, chairs, and Porta-potties, as well as two bouncy houses for the kids. Further, he provided food and drink for the guests, and some land for plowing. Notably, he had a local business on hand with a Hit-and-Miss engine powering two ice cream churns ( vanilla and strawberry) and kettle corn, all of which was for sale and a delicious treat.
Along with my Massey 12 G there were three creations by a local craftsman:

I had an opportunity to park my 12G next to a 235, so I took it:
I texted my son and included this picture to let him know we had arrived safely - His reply? "Cool, looks like you've been outclassed"

After this Big Boy stopped making furrows I could fall into:
My Wife and I were able to get a bit of plowing done as well:
We shared the field with two other tractors, Farmalls.
As on previous occasions, the Massey 12G was set up very well for plowing. While my furrows weren't as wide as the other tractors, I was plowing just about as deep, a good 5 inches as sometimes the coulter wheel was dragging the hub along the ground. My wife remarked several times about how clean and smooth our furrow was compared to the other tractors, though I thought they were also doing a nice job. A number of the onlookers were quite impressed with the performance from this little tractor.
I tried to get the line-up of tractors:
