Rainy Tractor Day in Petrolia

165

The rain didn’t stop the annual tradition of Tractor Day at LCCVI.

Dozens of tractors of every age and colour driven by students at the high school packed the parking lot Friday in the annual celebration of the student’s rural roots.

Parents with toddlers came by to take a look at the giant machines before the students made their way through Petrolia’s downtown and then out to Lambton Centennial School on Oil Heritage Road.

Preschoolers watched in amazement as LCCVI students drove their tractors out of the high school’s parking lot during lunch break.
