Lake Berryessa Oak & Vine 4H Club & the Calistoga Soroptomists! This group joined forces to celebrate and support local children with their Candyland and Gingerbread theme. The Soroptimist’s Read Aloud Partners Program (RAPP) brings weekly community readers to Calistoga elementary classrooms and gives book gifts to every child 3 times a year. The Oak & Vine 4-H Club is countywide and includes livestock projects, arts & crafts, baking & bread making, photography and trap & skeet. Featured was their 2555 HST (2018) Mahindra tractor – a great all around farm tractor with lots of fun attachments. This float won Best in Show and Best Float.
The 25th Annual Calistoga Lighted Tractor Parade took place on December 4, 2021 with over 50 participants who decked the halls with their holiday themed tractors, trucks and farm vehicles celebrating Calistoga’s agricultural heritage. Additional 1st Place winners in the 1960-Present Utility Vehicle or Truck category went to Superior Supplies, Inc. Ready-Mix Concrete Company, while the Pre-1960 category was won by Tamagni Equipment Rental. The Calistoga High School Band won for Best Youth Entry. La Place Vineyard & 3M Vineyard rounded out the top winners for First Place in the Utility Vehicle/Truck category.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this joyful community event. Mark your calendars for next year’s Lighted Tractor Parade which will be held on December 3, 2022.
