I have 2 to take the Power Wagon to, on the July 4th Weekend. One on the 4th and the other the 5th. They are about 40 miles from my house each way so I will drive the truck and enjoy it a little longer than the 15 miniuts the Parade last. Nice part is both have a Car Show I can enter so they will be day long adventures. Mark H.

Actually, I'm a watcher. I found out I really
like to look at the antique tractors (more than
the cars that show up for the car show).
I am really excited when a MF shows up.
Anyway, our little town has old and new tractors
alike in the parade around the 4th. Other towns
have tractors in parades and then antique tractor shows throughout the summer. Usually, a 20-40
minute drive though to find them.
As for the car show, I hunt for Plymouth Barracuda, my first love.

Its one parade in our town during the 4th of July. We work with the Boy Scouts of America program during the year. The parade is using our JD mini tractor that will tow a cart full of flaggs. They hand out 4000 flaggs every year.

One year the Brownies took 2nd place out of well over 100 entries including floats, bands playing music, etc. The little girls in their uniforms & blonde hair was pretty incredable. They looked 'serious business' & stole the show!

No tractor parades here, either. Once a year there is an antique tractor show and pull, which is fun, but no parade. :-(

I envy you Bob, we have no parades here, not for tractors anyway. We have one parade a year, thats for the county fair in the fall. This dumb bunch won't even do anything for July 4th.

I'll be in the July 4th parade here which passes through two towns: North Woodstock and Lincoln, with my Farmall M. I think I'm going to be pulling a float for the church advertising Vacation Bible School.
