BARRE – Santa Claus waves to people along Route 98 during the Barre lighted tractor parade this evening. There were more than 20 tractors, construction vehicles and other farm equipment in the parade.

Mike Van Lieshout leads off the parade with a sign proclaiming “A Barre Merry Christmas To All.”

The parade started at Van Lieshout’s farm on East Barre Road and then headed north on Route 98 to the barre Town Park.

This was the fourth Barre lighted parade. Last year’s parade was cancelled due to high winds. The event is organized by the Barre Betterment Committee.

Keeler Construction carried this sign wishing people a “Merry Christmas.”

Basinait Farms had a holiday display with a Christmas tree, Buddy the Elf and a festive M & M.

Here are some other photos from the parade.
