A parade on Saturday and Sunday will showcase about 50 antique tractors at Sunnybrook Farm Museum in Red Deer. At noon each day, the tractors will follow a half-hour route from Sunnybrook Farm, travelling west of Molly Banister Drive beside Bower Place Shopping Centre, north on Gaetz Avenue east and finally onto 30th Street before returning to the museum. After the parade, an antique tractor pull competition and other activities are planned for the rest of the day at the farm museum.
