WEST ALLIS -- A "Gathering of the Orange" led to a trail of tractors in West Allis. Antique tractor collectors gathered to drive the machines down to Racine County on Thursday, Sept. 12.
"We grew up around this stuff I guess. There's a passion for it," said Norman Nelson, Power and Collectibles Society.
If you drove through West Allis last Thursday morning, you may have seen the vehicles that looked a little out of place.
People in the area got to see a long caravan of Allis-Chalmers tractors.
"There's a show like every year, and different parts of the states... and this year it's in Wisconsin," said Schulz Jr.
"There from multiple states: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Candida -- we got somebody from Canada," said Nelson.
"It was like misting and raining in West Allis," said Schulz Jr.
While the rain, wind and thick fog presented its challenges for those making the trip, like the tractors, their drivers say they can get through just about anything.
If you missed the parade, there's still plenty of opportunity to go and see it for yourself. They're going to be down in Racine County for "Fall Harvest Days."
