This weekend the flow of traffic will be moving a little slower, because it is the annual tractor run through the canyon. This is a lot of fun for the entire family to enjoy! There is something about tractors and antique farm equipment that makes the child in both young and old to become wide-eyed! Hey, why you did think there is so many country songs about tractors and country boys and girls!?
