Annual Tractor Ride celebrated in Baileys Harbor

A traditional tractor ride honoring one of Door County’s most famous tractor drivers, Freddy Kodanko, was held in Baileys Harbor on Tuesday.  Kodanko was remembered as the Door County Polka King who drove his tractor in local parades while playing polka music.  Nineteen tractor drivers participated in the 19th annual Freddy Kodanko Tractor Rally.  Organizer Greg “Fuzzy” Sunstrom shares his story behind Freddy K’s Massey Ferguson vintage tractor and the yearly rally.



Sunstrom purchased Kodanko’s orange tractor after Freddy passed away in 2003 and began the annual tradition.  Tuesday’s tractor rally covered five different stops beginning at 11 AM, with the final stop in downtown Baileys Harbor behind the Blue Ox.
