Default Bullsnort Christmas Parade

No offense to you "Big City" types (Dutchman) but we have a pretty good parade up our way. I'm guessing over one thousand folks show up in the middle of the country, miles to the nearest town, to watch.

Creekbender (didn't get a photo of him), Snakeman (on a Red tractor, grinning like a JA eating briars), Mt Man (black and white photo), and I think it was some of Dirtroad's kin were all in it.

Hope you enjoy a few of the photos.

I forgot to mention Creekbender laid some of the black marks.

Does anyone know how long the parade route is? I was told something like 7 miles.

Several pretty vehicles in the parade.

I never knew you couldn't say jackass on here.

Opps! Evidently, you can.

The newspaper says the parade route is 3 miles long (don't know for sure--Farmall doesn't have an odometer).

Usually, the leaders of the parade are already at the finish before the horses leave the starting point.

Next year, I'm going to mount a video (tractorcam) camera on the Farmall, and video the "Rednecks on parade".

We thought about me riding the 4 wheeler with the real Flash on the back, pulling a trailer with Mr Steady and some family in the back tossing candy.
But Flash has a broke arm, don't know how good his balance would be. I showed him the photos and he said something about peeing on a tractor tire.
