Dozens of antique tractor enthusiasts drove their tractors from the Trigg County Recreation Complex to Cerulean and back on Saturday.

This was the fourth year for the West Kentucky Antique Power Association’s annual tractor run. Trigg County resident Hal Fennell, who is the president of the association, said that the club was for antique tractor lovers from all over the central part of the state. After gathering at the complex shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday, the group headed through Wallonia and up to Cerulean, where they stopped for lunch and had their business meeting. Fennell said the roundtrip was about 30 miles. Fennell said that member Dale Henderson planned the route for this year’s tractor run.

One by one, the tractors lined up behind Sheriff Randy Clark to depart. Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander waited behind to serve as their police escort. As the tractors started to leave, he laughed as he repeatedly played the theme song from “Green Acres” over his loudspeakers.

Fennell said that the WKAPA meets every month, alternating between Hopkinsville and Richland. He said they sponsor several events a year, such as Plow Day in Hopkinsville during the third weekend in October and the Antique Tractor and Mule Days in Hanson.
