The nation’s oldest parade of tractors, combines, and other farm equipment decorated in thousands of twinkling Christmas lights returns to downtown Sunnyside on Saturday, December 1, at 6:30 p.m. The parade celebrates the community’s agricultural roots and kicks off the holiday season in this central Washington town.

The Lighted Farm Implement Parade was voted among the top 10 lighted parades in the U.S. by A&E TV and was featured on the Travel Channel and XTreme Christmas.

The route starts at the corner of Reith Way and Barnard Boulevard, follows Edison Avenue to Selah Avenue and South First Street, and ends at Warehouse Avenue (view map in PDF).

Admission is free. Find more information about the parade and other events in Sunnyside at lightedfarmparade.com.
