Community members were invited to find a spot to enjoy the parade. Some of the prizes awarded included those for “Cleanest Tractor” – Ethan and Ty Hayes; “Oldest Tractor” – Tom Albright; “Tractor that Drove the Furthest to the Parade” – Isaac Kroll; and “Most American Flags/Patriotic Tractor” – Valerie Gall.
