While the weekend of Farmers Day festivities in Robbins were cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Hussey family carried on the tradition of parading through town on horseback and horse-drawn wagons. The scaled-down parade, which has been held without interruption since 1955, was led by wagon master Robert Hussey, who took over his father, Odell, in 2017.
The festival this year was dedicated in memory of the late Johnsie Tipton, who worked to promote and support Farmers Day during her 25-year career as an advertising representative for The Pilot. She died in October.
