Here Comes a Country Christmas Parade – with Tractors!

string of lighted Christmas lightsWhat comes to mind when you think of Christmas parades…marching bands, balloons, and floats – and tractors? If you’ve never seen a Lighted Tractor Parade, then Ferndale is the place to be Sunday, December 18, 2016! As the sun goes down (or as some farmers say, whenever they get done milking!), Ferndale’s Victorian Village comes alive with sparkling lights as ranchers and farmers line up their festively decorated tractors and wagons for the annual parade. This longtime tradition celebrates the spirit and simplicity of old-fashioned Christmases as well as Ferndale’s history as an agricultural center.

Northern California leads the nation in trucker Christmas parades, and Ferndale’s parade is only 15 minutes away from Fortuna! Ranchers and farmers can have a lot of time to think creatively while they milk their cows or ride their tractors, so you may be amazed at some of the tractors’ holiday themes! Who knows which ones the judges will decide have the most Christmas spirit, the best lights, or best Christmas theme? Reserve your stay at The Redwood Riverwalk Hotel this weekend, and you’ll find out, when the 24th annual Lighted Tractor Parade rolls down Ferndale’s Main Street!
