Tractors unite for special benefit parade
Tractors amd mowers of all ages, shapes and sizes paraded down Rte. 360 this past Friday.
It wasn’t the usual traffic or the kind of parade you normally see, but coming down Rte. 360 Friday morning were some of the best looking antique tractors and pulling trucks in the Northern Neck.
This parade of power was a kick-off for a benefit lawnmower, antique tractor and truck pull held “Down on the Farm” at the Robert Gawen property on Saturday. Around 26 local owners participated in the parade, bringing out their favorite tractor or truck to show off to Northumberland and Richmond County residents.
The parade began at the Ruritan Recreation Park in Callao just after 10 a.m. and proceeded down Rte. 360 through Callao, Village and Warsaw proudly displaying their American flags before turning around and heading back to the Ruritan lot several hours later. Proceeds from the pull on Saturday are going to local volunteer fire and rescue squad organizations.
