More participants expected at Frazee’s ‘Tractor Tracks’ event
Frazee’s 2nd Annual Tractor Tracks display of antique tractors will be held Sunday, July 28, on grounds adjacent to the new Essential Health Clinic and Northern Lights Dance Academy.
The display area is between Endeavor Road and Main Avenue East.
The turnout for the collector’s show the last day of the annual Turkey Days celebration is expected to grow by at least 40-50 percent or more over the first attempt in 2012.
Last year, there were 33 entrants and 20 owners opted to drive their restored beauties in the Turkey Days Parade at 2 p.m. This time, it is expected that at least 50 tractors will be placed on the green space along Endeavor Road, with most of them also showing their rigs in the ever-popular afternoon parade.
One of the organizers, Roger Boe, is even more optimistic because more contacts have been made.
“I think the numbers will be more like 60-75, maybe close to 100,” he stated.
“People are talking about the event based on the good reception ‘Tractor Tracks’ had last year,” Boe added.
Entrants have been asked to start registering at 8 a.m., with the process being finished at 9. The site is along Endeavor Road, the route that extends from the All in All convenience store toward the new Essentia Clinic, and curves back where it intersects with East Main near the Northern Lights Dance Academy.
There is no entry fee for collectors to enter their machines, nor is there any admission charge. The show is sponsored by the Frazee Area Community Club (FACC).
