The Great Eastern Iowa Tractorcade continues Tuesday. The first of seven groups will once again head out of the Marion County Fairgrounds at 7am, taking Highway 5 North and Highway 316 to get to Runnells. From there, they’ll go east on F70, stopping in Monroe. After that, they’ll take Highway 163 and T15 to go to the South Overlook at Red Rock Dam. They’ll then come back to the Fairgrounds, taking T15, S71, and G44 back into Knoxvillle. The last group will arrive at around 5:30. Yesterday, the heavy mid-day rains caused Tractorcade to be delayed and re-routed. Drivers took shelter at Twin Cedars, Attica, and Melcher-Dallas.
