The Third Annual Lighted Tractor Parade rumbled down Main Street on Saturday, Dec. 2. While Santa may arrive by a reindeer-pulled sleigh elsewhere, in Winters, he arrives by firetruck in the parade before heading to the Rotary Park gazebo to visit with children and observe the annual lighting of the community Christmas tree.

Other festivities of the day included the annual FFA Christmas tree sale, which was nearly sold out by 10:30 a.m., and the annual Winters Friends of the Library Family Holiday Festival at the Community Center, featuring food, a book sale, children’s crafts and children’s choir and dance performances.

According to Winters Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Carrie Green, this year’s tractor parade had 43 entries, up last year from 32, and drew thousands to downtown Winters, many from out of the area.
