So what are they going to serve? That is the question on many residents' minds as they think of the upcoming RAGBRAI overnight stay on July 24 in Webster City.
How are they going to make food for that many people? It is estimated that approximately 20,000 extra people will be participating in the event and will be guests in town that day.
Vendor Committee Chair Sarah Kopriva and committee members have been hard at work organizing vendors who will be selling their wares on July 24. This includes in-town and out-of-town businesses and organizations.
A food court will extend from Second to Division Streets on Des Moines Street. Area restaurants will be open and selling food from their business, and some local vendors will be extending their business to the court outdoors. Some area churches will sell their food at their respective buildings.
