Volunteers have been working on getting last minute details finished in anticipation of the RAGBRAI?riders' arrival today.

Barricades went up Monday, blocking off the North Alley area which will be used for the main stage entertainment and beverage garden. The entertainment begins at 4 p.m. with Three Dog Night to perform at 10 p.m. Free stage acts are also scheduled throughout the afternoon.

Food vendors will be located on Des Moines Street between Second and Bank streets, or at their normal location. Several area churches and the middle school are preparing meals for the overnight guests.
