Randolph FFA Tractor Parade Friday
The annual Randolph FFA Tractor Parade will be on Friday, April 12, 2019. Line up begins at 8:00 am in the parking lot behind the shop. The parade begins at 9:00 am. All tractors are welcome, big, small, old, new, shined up and even ones with their working clothes on! In addition, there are combines, self-propelled sprayers, and fertilizer applicators.
The annual Randolph FFA Tractor parade was started a number of years ago as kind of a "kick-off" to spring fieldwork and planting. That first year there were only about 30 tractors in the parade. The record now is around 135 tractors! It is quite an event in Randolph as all the students, teachers and administration come out on the school lawn and watch the parade!
Over the years we have had all kinds of weather for the parade. Some nice warm days, others with cold rain and snow. Given the current forecast, I suspect there is a chance some schools may be closed unless the forecast changes. At this point, the Randolph FFA Tractor parade will be Friday. Advisor Ed Terry will let me know if the parade is postponed.
