Tractor parade.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Missouri lawmakers passed a measure in May that allows farm tractors on state roads as long as they are in a parade. Seems the only way they were allowed previously was when farmers were driving between fields. According to the Associated Press, the governor said tractor parades give Missourians a chance to see the machines that help make the state an agricultural powerhouse. We're not sure how many parades Missouri has a year, but it must be plenty.
