Lethbridge set to honour its agricultural heritage 

June 27, 2017 by  

During the 2017 Lethbridge Tractor Rally will be hitting the streets for its fourth year, and everyone is welcome to join in this homage to the area’s agricultural heritage.

The tractors, which will all be antique one-cylinder engine models, will drive through the city before making a stop outside city hall. Members of the public who have a one-cylinder tractor are also welcome to join the procession as it winds its way through Lethbridge.

Anyone who is interesting in participating in this parade of farm machinery has been asked to arrive at Broxburn Vegetable Farm by no later than 4:00 pm. The organizers have advised that if a person’s tractor is too slow or if a tractor owner feels theirs won’t be able to complete the parade route that they can still get involved by hitching a ride on someone else’s tractor.

The day after the procession, the public is welcome to come to the farm to watch and maybe even participate in several activities that have been planned for the afternoon. They will also have a chance to see how these vehicles start. There will be no fee charged to participate in either of the functions. Reusable banners and other printed products for an event such as this can be supplied by a local printer.

This salute to Lethbridge’s agricultural community will be held on June 23rd and 24th, and anyone who wishes to find out more can do so on the Lethbridge Living website.
