The city route for the ride will be the same as last year with some changes to the county route after lunch. Provided

The Double-O Tractor Ride will return to Albert Lea and other parts of southern Minnesota once again this summer.

The event will take place this year on Saturday. Prior to the ride, breakfast and registration will take place at Freeborn County Fairgrounds from 7:30-8:30 a.m. The ride will begin at 9 a.m., and the group will travel around the city, passing every nursing home as done previously. For lunch, there will be a burger basket meal at the Moose Lodge available to the public for $9. Then, the tractors will depart for Clarks Grove and stop briefly in the park before continuing on to the West Freeborn Lutheran Church and returning to Albert Lea.

Participation cost is $45 and includes breakfast, lunch and a commemorative ride button. Additional riders can join for a fee of $25. Proceeds of this event go towards the Salvation Army of Freeborn County.
