Threshers to host tractor parade this Saturday
Honouring a tradition that began in 2011, a group of local residents on tractors will be touring the area to mark the weekend of the annual reunion of the Huron Pioneer Thresher and Hobby Association which has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
The tractor run is set to start Sept. 12 at 11 a.m., with the parade leaving from the camping booth at the Blyth Campground on Gypsy Lane. No route has been identified as of yet.
Reports indicate there will be food available at the end of the tour.
The tour is reminiscent of the annual breakfast tours that have been taking place since 2011 where antique tractor owners would leave the campground on the Thursday before the reunion and drive to a nearby community for breakfast. Stops have included churches, community centres and restaurants.
This special event is being run by Blyth’s Joe Hallahan and Gerald Benninger.
