Still time to sign up for Christmas tractor parade
Tractors decorated in lights will roll through Virgil on Dec. 15. File

Mark your calendar for the Christmas tractor parade – it rolls back into Virgil on Dec. 15 at 6 p.m.

“We’re doing it in Virgil again. That’s kind of the hub of our farming community,” said Dorothy Soo-Wiens, who organized the inaugural event last year with her husband Erwin.

“That’s where they buy their products from, their fertilizers and all that. It’s kind of the grassroots of farming.”

She said the route is the same as last year and will start at the arena in Virgil. 

From there it will travel Four Mile Creek Road, past Pleasant Manor, onto Eldon Road, left on Line 1 Road, across Niagara Stone Road to Concession 4, then Line 2, and finally back to the arena.

With planning underway, Soo-Weins said, “Right now we’ve got about 30 tractors, friends and farmers that are excited and they’re already planning on how they’re going to decorate their tractors.”

Anyone who has a tractor and wants to be involved is welcome and can contact her by email at erwinanddorothywiens@gmail.com.
