The annual Ellerbe Farm Parade was met with blue skies and warm weather, as locals showed up to watch the procession that was led by men in military trucks and farmers on used John Deere tractors, according to the Richmond County Daily Journal. 

The news soruce reported that the parade showcased the Raiders Marching Band, Richmond County Sheriff James Clemmons, Ellerbe Mayor Olivia Webb, various Boy Scout packs and organizations ranging from churches to humane societies.

"I think it turned out perfectly," Amy Yaklin, director for the Farm Service Agency and planner of the event, told the Journal. "The weather was great, and there were more entries than expected. I had about 75 sign up, but it was more like 120 entries."

Massive John Deere tractors driven by farmers rolled through the streets as young children gawked at the size and power of these machines, according to the news source.

According to the town's website, the annual parade is an event that brings the North Carolina town's residents together for a celebration of agriculture, local food and fare and southern culture.
