Thousands of spectators lined the streets of McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania, for the 38th annual Fulton Fall Folk Festival Parade, according to the Chambersburg Public Opinion.
Visitors came from all over to enjoy the festivities, but the majority of the individuals who stayed for the whole event were tractor enthusiasts and people who wanted to learn about the agricultural history of the area, the news source reported.
A resident told the Opinion about a local boy and his vintage John Deere tractor, saying "his sister went to England for her senior trip and we offered a senior trip to him but he said he wanted a tractor he could fix up."
Many of the participants acquired their love for the used farm equipment through growing up on a farm and working on vintage tractors in order to restore the machines to working condition, according to the news source.
The Hagerstown Herald-Mail reported that the parade has not taken a year off due to the weather like many other tractor events, and has run continuously for the 38 years.
