Bluebonnet Tractor Ride - April 11

The Seventh Annual Bluebonnet Tractor Ride is scheduled for April 11. Each year the Hill Country Antique Tractor & Engine Club hosts an annual Tractor Ride.  We have been hosting this event for a decade now and it has grown to be a favorite of tractor owners all over the state.  Many tractor enthusiasts enjoy the day in the beautiful Texas Hill Country upon their tractor.  The ride begins with registration and light morning refreshments.  A “driver’s meeting” is held prior to the ride covering all of the safety rules and expectations of the participants. The tractor riders embark on a ride through some of the prettiest areas in the county and the ride begins.

Limited space is available on our “people hauler” for spouses and non-tractor riders who wish to participate in the days festivities.  All riders stop for a noon meal where awards are given out for the “oldest tractor”, “oldest driver” and “farthest traveled rider”.  Each year the Club also recognizes a hard working Club member for their dedication to the Club.  Riders then climb back on their tractors and travel back to the starting point with the ride culminating around 3 pm in the afternoon.

If you are interested in participating in the next Bluebonnet Tractor Ride please contact Regina Weidenfeller at 830-889-9348 for more details.  We welcome you to come ride along with us!

$15 per person to ride on the “people hauler” and eat lunch.  $10 per person for lunch only. Call 830-889-9348 for more information.
