Calistoga's Lighted Tractor Parade is entering its 22nd year and has grown in such popularity since its inception that the parade length was extended two years ago.

In its inception it was a struggle to get the tractor parade off the ground and approved. Twenty-some years later the struggle is finding space to stand and see the Lighted Tractor Parade amid a sea of revelers on Lincoln Avenue.

Back when it was just an idea Jeri Arnold was the mom who stood in front of the all-male City Council, postured with hands on her hips, and declared that there was nothing for the kids to do for the holidays.

This year's Lighted Tractor Parade, Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m., will have a little variation in its route due to the work being done on the Lincoln Avenue Bridge.
