Planting issues stall tractor parade

Local News

ARTHUR, Ill. (WCIA) — The annual Parade of Tractors through downtown this year has been canceled. Organizers say the poor planting weather for farmers has made it difficult for them to organize this year’s event.
Last year’s “Tractor Cruise” included hundreds of vintage tractors from all around the state. Businesses are set to lose a big day of tourism, but the people of Arthur are losing a much anticipated day of celebration.

Organizers say all focus returns to getting the event back for next year.
