A tractor parade was held in the mountain town of Hayesville, NC on Saturday, September 28. More than 50 tractors putt-putt-putted around the square on this splendid fall day. The Clay County Tractor Club sponsored this fun-filled event that honored farmers and agriculture.
This is Ronnie Smith, a farmer who lives on Downings Creek. He formed the Clay County Tractor Club in memory of his son, Dwight, who was run over by a tractor and killed many years ago in Clay County, NC.
This huge machine is a combine that farmers use to cut corn. Hub Cheeks owns this John Deere.
