Twenty-one tractors traveled Ferndale’s Paradise Road on Friday, July 29, in a procession to honor Don McKay, 74, who died July 4 unloading one of his antique tractors for a Fourth of July parade in Blaine.

A short graveside service at Woodlawn Cemetery followed the Friday procession, which was organized by Don’s son, Bruce McKay.
