Children of all ages participated in the pedal tractor pull Saturday at Wellington’s July 4 Freedom Celebration. Participants would mount a mini tractor weighted by a sled, then pedal as fast and as hard as they could to pull it along. Kids competed in five age groups ranging from four to 12 years old. Each group had a first, second, and third place winner. Calvin Woods recorded the distance for each participant.
