“Ag in the City” comes to Pella this week for Thursdays in Pella, and with the return of the event comes the latest chapter in the popular challenges between the mayors of Pella and Knoxville. Last year, Pella mayor Darrell Dobernecker narrowly edged Knoxville’s then-mayor Harv Sprafka in a goat-milking contest on the Tulip Toren. This year, Dobernecker faces new Knoxville mayor Don Zoutte in a special free throw-shooting contest. The competition will be held at 7:00 p.m. Thursday night in downtown Pella during “Ag in the City.”
