8th Annual Mackinac Bridge Antique Tractor Crossing Presented by Owosso Tractor Parts

If you miss the Antique Tractor Crossing, head to St. Ignace for a weekend full of fun!

Mackinaw City, MI  –  September 11, 2015  –  About a thousand restored vintage tractors from all across the Midwest are in Mackinaw City this morning. It’s the Vintage Tractor Gathering and Parade that just launched at 9 am across the Mackinac Bridge.

That’s right, a thousand tractor drivers are making the trek across the Mighty Mac to the St. Ignace side of the Mackinac Straits this morning. This year, the annual crossing is “A Year to Remember”, as the tractors make the trip across the bridge on the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York City.

The American flags are waving high and fast all across the sea of tractors this morning. The tractors started their trek in the staging area west of the downtown Mackinaw City area on Central Avenue yesterday to line up with their respective clubs. At 9 am this morning the Mackinaw City parade started and the tractors made their way through town to get on the bridge.

Last year, it took 3 1/2 hours for the 910 tractors to travel from Mackinaw City to Little Bear Arena in St. Ignace! Don’t worry if you don’t have time to get to the bridge to see the tractors, you can see the pictures at the website for the event or head to St. Ignace for an entire weekend of fun for the whole family with concession stands, an antique snowmobile show, engines on display, tractor games with prizes, raffle giveaways, another parade on Saturday afternoon, fireworks, music, and more!
