FALLON, Nev. (AP) -- Tourism officials in Fallon have announced plans for two new events they hope will attract visitors and promote its agricultural and artistic diversity with locally grown foods and handmade quilts.

Tractors & Truffles set for April 24 will feature a gourmet meal prepared with foods grown or raised in Churchill County along with a concert featuring country blues singer Rory Block.

Fallon Convention and Visitors Director Rick Gray says the $100 per-person charge will include a daytime tour of Lattin Farms, with lunch and cooking demonstrations.

He says the Fallon Festival of Quilts scheduled May 19-22 also will highlight the town's arts scene.
