Threshermen’s Parade Moving Forward

PONTIAC – Pontiac Mayor Bill Alvey says plans are moving forward for the Threshermen’s Parade.

Earlier this summer, the Pontiac Area Chamber of Commerce had announced that it didn’t have enough resources to successfully mount the annual event.

Alvey says the city has now joined forces with the chamber and adds that everything is falling into place.

“We got together and put the affairs of funding and staff to rest and we are proceeding with the parade,” said Alvey. “The Threshermen are having their reunion and we’ve been doing this for 51 years so we plan on continuing the efforts for as long as we can.”

The Threshermen’s Parade is scheduled for Labor Day weekend. It typically involves dozens of vintage tractors and other attractions on a route through downtown Pontiac.
