    Each year we hold a Fall Festival sponsored by our Methodist Church.
    The big event is a tractor parade where folks bring and drive their favorite family tractor or tractors from all over the area to join in a parade.
    This year we had over 125 all shapes sizes, shiny dull, dirty and clean.
    We have a variety of kids games a cake wheel (think roulette), chicken barbeque, hamburgers, hot dogs and sausages along with a few vendors.
    Great weather and a fun time for the community.
    Some pictures:

      That looks like a great time. I love those old tractors. My neighbor has 1958 Massey Ferguson Model 65 that his Daddy bought new. Still runs great and works the farm.

          When I had my place in Wisconsin, bought a 47 Ford 2n so my dad could use in his garden. He had about an acre. He only lived 10 miles from me. Come spring he’d start his garden, we’d also use the dump truck and haul loads of duck manure for his fertilizer. When he was a kid, they plowed with mules, in Mississippi. The joy those gardens brought him was indescribable, and he gave everything away our families didn’t use. I miss my best friend everyday! Thanks for the memories.
