Tractor parade slated for Aug. 18

By Kitsey Burns Harrison -

Each year the Windsor’s Crossroads Ruritan Club hosts a full country breakfast followed by a tractor parade around the countryside. This year’s tractor cruise fundraiser is slated for Aug. 18.

The event will begin with a full country breakfast at 7 a.m. to include eggs, ham, sausage, bacon grits, gravy and more. Donations are accepted for the breakfast which go to help with upkeep on this historic community building that once served as a school house as well as to help community members in time of crisis.

Antique tractors 25 years or older will be on display during the breakfast with a tractor cruise leaving at 10 a.m. for a drive through the countryside. The fee to display a tractor is $10 which includes breakfast and a souvenir. There is a five, seven, 10 or 20 mile cruise that participants may choose for the tractor parade.

The historic Windsor’s Crossroads Community building is located at 5101 Windsor Road in Hamptonville.
