Tractor Ride Through Burt County, Ends on Oakland’s Main Street


I love to take a cruise around Burt County, but I have never done it on a tractor! Many area men did just that Sunday! They began at Oakland Express on Highway 32 and made a journey through the county, stopping at the Green Lantern in Decatur for lunch. After lunch, they began their journey back through the county, ending by driving their tractors down Oakland’s Main Street. All photos credit of Denise Gilliland, Editor and Chief, Kat Country Hub.
