The sun shone and the people turned out in force, and more than 70 vintage tractors travelled along the road through Cullybackey and up to the Rectory Field. They were followed by a variety of vintage cars, motorbikes and even two steam powered traction engines which sat proudly in the grounds of the Rectory.
The crowds were entertained by the Alistair Scott Ceilidh band and by David Henderson, seated on bales of hay waiting for the much-anticipated hog roast sponsored by Cranswick Foods and supplied by McMasters Butchers, Whitehead.
There was great support from local businesses and local crafters who were selling their wares.
The parish ladies were over run at the cake stall, tuck shop and in the Craig’s Vintage Tea Tent.
Curate-in-Charge, the Rev Adrian Halligan, said: “The criac was mighty as they would say! All in all, a great day for Craig’s Parish Church and for the community of Cullybackey.
