John Sherwood of rural Knoxville has been named the Grand Marshall of the 12th Annual WMT Great Eastern Iowa Tractorcade. Sherwood is a familiar figure at most tractor shows and events in Marion County. He’ll be riding a 1953 Farmall Super M Tractor leading a parade of 550 tractors. Sherwood was the winner of the 6500 Class Tractor-Pull at the Iowa State Fair last year. The event will be held June 12-15, with the Knoxville Raceway as headquarters. The tractorcade will visit Twin Cedars, Melcher Dallas, Pleasantville, Monroe, both shores of Lake Red Rock, and Pella.
