"It's a celebration by the Fremont Public Schools of the farming community in which we live," Superintendent Ken Haggart told Mlive.com. "It gives us an opportunity to recognize the importance of farming in our community."
Haggart said tractor day is "one of the highlights of the school year."
"Between Daisy Brook Elementary -- yes, we have younger kids who drive lawn tractors -- to our middle school and high school kids, we may have as many as 50 tractors," Haggart said.
Some students said it takes them up to two hours to drive the slow-moving farm vehicles from their homes to the schools.
