The Christmas Tractors Of Carrick On Suir 2015

One of the biggest and greatest events on the Carrick On Suir calendar is the tractor run and this year certainly did not disappoint when I can almost go as far and say it was one of the greatest things I've experienced this year. I don't think there's even been a time when I've been more proud than to be from Carrick On Suir, logging onto facebook Sunday morning to see the tractor run featured on breakingnews.ie and Joe.ie, the brainbox behind it all Stuart Downie did such an amazing job and really went out of his way to put Carrick on the map.

For those of you who have been living under a cave and haven't heard of the Christmas tractors of Carrick On Suir then you clearly don't know me because from the first of December all I talked about was these tractors and how excited I was, not to mention the Late Late Toy Show's 'Fear The Deere' Michael Hayden would be attending so I was literally unable to contain my excitement.
 The tractor run is basically a parade of tractors which go through the town, but these aren't normal tractors these are the most done up, extravagant, Christmassy tractors and it's unreal.
 Saturday was one of the most miserable days I've seen all year, now when I say it was a day for the ducks, it was a day ONLY for the ducks but that didn't stop us, or the thousands of people who took to the streets to watch the parade. It began at 5pm with Christmas music blaring up the main street and the Christmas lights lighting up the street, I can't even begin to explain to you what the atmosphere was like but I loved it, an entire community coming together...very Christmas With The Kranks.
It was the most amazing evening in Carrick and I'm so proud to be a Carrick gal this week, a massive huge congratulations and well done to Stuart and everyone who was involved it was a mega success and I cannot wait until next year, if you want to catch up on the 2014 tractors you can read what I wrote on them here and here and of course if you want to watch the tractors you can do so here :)
 Bring on 2016!!
