Llangollen Illuminated Tractor Run
Tractors start to muster at Llangollen Pavilion from 3.30pm to leave for the main street (Castle Street) in Llangollen at 5.00pm to drive Fron, Chirk, St Martins, Overton, Ruabon, Trevor and back to Llangollen. The public will be welcome to walk (free of charge) around the illuminated tractors standing on the road around the Pavilion until its time for the tractors to leave at 5.00pm.
We have partnered with the Llangollen & District Young Farmers Association to organise the Llangollen Illuminated Tractor Run in December to put smiles on peoples faces in Llangollen and other villages on the route in December.
The route will start through Llangollen, a circular route via Chirk, St Martins and Ruabon and return to Llangollen taking in as many villages as we can. Short stop over at St Martins School carpark for people and kids to walk around the tractors and get their photo taken with our Santa so bring some cash for our bucket collection please.
