Hundreds turn out to cheer illuminated tractor run through town

Hundreds of cheering spectators lined the centre of the town to watch as this year's Illuminated Tractor Run by the Vale of Llangollen Rotary and the Llangollen Young Farmers Club came rumbling through.

Building on the success of last year's event, organisers promised this year's event would be even more spectacular, featuring 50 tractors and an extended route for the brightly-lit and decorated brightly lit tractors.

Starting at 5 pm from The Pavilion in Llangollen, the convoy embarked on a picturesque journey through Llangollen, Trevor, Acrefair, Plas Madoc, Ruabon, Rhosllanerchrugog, Rhostyllen, Bersham, Wrexham, Morrison's car park (for a 45-minute stop), Bersham, Minera, Bwlchgwyn, Llandegla, Horseshoe Pass, and finishing back at Llangollen.

Leading the way, shouting "Merry Christmas" as he went was Santa himself.

The route was carefully curated to spread the festive cheer across the region.

This year the event aims to raise funds for three worthy causes - The Teenage Cancer Trust, Nightingale Hope Hospice, and a community defibrillator. 

* To make donations even more accessible, the organizing committee has set up an online fundraising page at
