Clay County Fair Queen Emma Schwarck joined the annual Parade of Antique Tractors Tuesday morning. Thirty-five tractors from across northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota took a loop around the Clay County Fairgrounds. The traditional parade began more than 15 years ago and this year featured tractors from the '40s through the '70s.
