This festive tractor was decorated by Lester Farms, and rolled down Main Street in the Third Annual Lighted Tractor Parade, just one of the many holiday activities that happened on Saturday, Dec. 2.
The parade, which is sponsored by the Winters Chamber of Commerce, drew thousands of onlookers to town.

The tractor parade is on Dec. 7, starting at 6:30 p.m. and lasts about an hour, followed promptly by the lighting of the town Christmas tree.
Main Street between Haven and Elliot streets will be closed starting at 4 p.m.
Souvenir programs will be available that map out the parade route as well as food, announcer and music locations.
This year’s announcers are KUIC’s own Dave McCallum and DJ Rock a Lot.
Santa will lead the parade and set up shop in the Rotary Park gazebo to listen to all Christmas lists.
Railroad Avenue and Main Street is a great spot to watch the parade, but it’s not the only one. As 6,000 plus are expected to attend, there’s plenty of other prime viewing locations along Main Street to keep the claustrophobia to a minimum.
Winters Rotary will be serving free cookies and hot chocolate – that aren’t for Santa – at Rotary Park.
Winters Fire Department will be putting on a toy drive, also located at Rotary Park.
Stay off the street while the parade is in motion. Although tractors are slow, it is best to prevent and avoid any potential accidents.
Overflow parking will be available at the PG&E facility and Green River Brewing & Taproom parking lots.
Volunteers are always appreciated and much needed to keep this event annual. To sign up, call the Winters Chamber of Commerce at 530-795-2329.
