Denison -- Massey-Harris, Minneapolis-Moline, Allis-Chalmers, Turbo Farmall, Fordson, Ford and a herd of John Deere.
As the lengthy tractorcade passed through historic downtown Denison, the names rolling by were same ones who toiled in the fields of the Red River Valley in years past and a literal who's who of the leading agricultural manufacturers during the 1900s.
For residents of North Texas and southern Oklahoma who grew up on working farms that dotted the fertile landscape of the Red River Valley, this is their heritage.
One of the many highlights of Esbenshade Farms Golden Harvest Days is a 35-mile tractorcade that rumbles through the scenic Red River Valley of Oklahoma and Texas. Friday, June 14, the tractorcade traveled from Esbenshade Farm east of Colbert, Oklahoma, passed through Denison, Texas, rolled across Denison Dam and then down Hwy 91 to the farm for a busy weekend of activities.
