Brittany Baird, of Brunswick County, Virginia, had her grandfather drop her and her prom date off at prom on his tractor.
She tells CBS that she didn't want to arrive in a limo. "I wanted a different way to go into prom that I knew people would remember, so I asked my papa to drive us in on his John Deere. Never had I EVER expected it to somewhat blow up like this.
We just got on in a parking lot on one side of the school. My family didn't want us on it too long in fear of us possibly falling off! Shortly before going in, my insecurities started coming out and I was afraid that maybe some people would just think I was crazy for doing something like that. However, as soon and we started driving up to the entrance I got really excited.
Everyone at the walk in reciprocated my feelings and their cheers were loud and just astonishing. Everyone loved it!"
