Armstrong Annual Christmas Tractor Parade Route
The parade route is generally posted on Facebook several days before the event. In recent years, the route includes a loop through Armstrong as well as a loop through Enderby.
The Armstrong Christmas Tractor Parade generally starts with the tractors queuing at the Armstrong IPE fairgrounds. The tractors do a loop around the fairgrounds, drive past the co-op gas station to the fire hall, drive down the one-way street past Shephards, and do a pass-by of the fairground main gate. The tractors then head up past Memorial Park and drive up the hill around the brick school before turning onto Rosedale Avenue and heading out to the highway.
The tractors then drive along the highway to McLeod Subdivision before carrying on to Mountain View Road and onto Back Enderby Road. The tractors then take Old Vernon Road through Enderby, BC to the hockey rink. The tractors drive past the high school, cross the highway at Knight Avenue, and then turn down Sicamous Avenue before heading back to Armstrong.
