After saying their "I do's," Kurtis and Kristen Page of Canton hopped on a John Deere and rode in the tractor parade Saturday in downtown Canton.

"It was a lot of fun," Kurtis said.

The two were married at the Church of Christ in Canton, and they had planned on riding a tractor from the church to the Moose, where their wedding reception was held, anyway.

But, by chance, the tractor parade was taking place, and they decided to join in at the spur of the moment.

The parade was part of the Endless Mountains Antique Tractor & Machinery Association annual show, which continues today at the Canton Fireman's Field.

Kurtis said he grew up around antique tractors and the farm, and so an après wedding tractor ride was something he and his wife wanted to do.

They rode his Uncle Ron Neal's tractor.

Kurtis said the association didn't seem to mind them joining the parade.

"They said, 'hop right in,'" he commented.

Along the street, people cheered as the bride and groom rode by.

This year's parade, which went through town at 3 p.m., had 25-30 tractors.
