BARRE – The lighted tractor parade will be back on Dec. 10, heading down Route 98 at 5:30 p.m.

Last year’s 4th annual tractor parade was cancelled when there were high winds.

This year organizers at the Barre Betterment Committee applied for a second date, Dec. 11, in the permit with the state Department of Transportation. That’s just in case there is bad weather on Dec. 10. Last year the BBC didn’t have a backup date with the permit.

Tractors should show up near the Van Lieshout farm on East Barre Road by 5:15 p.m. They will then head north on Route 98 to the Barre Town Park. No RSVPs are needed.
