Two well-known individuals in the ag industry are taking advantage of a rare opportunity to travel the streets of Washington D.C. in a tractor cab as a part of the inaugural parade.
Farm broadcaster Max Armstrong and Chad Colby, who works for a Central Illinois Case IH dealership, will drive farm tractors in the event.
“It’ll be a privilege to be in a cab. We are looking forward to it,” Armstrong told The Central Illinois Farm Network in an interview this week.
Traditional parade entries include military units, bands and horses. The weather in Washington D.C. calls for a few showers but it could be worse – like when it was only seven degrees for Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.
