It was a "Free Dog Night" for Webster City residents as they celebrated the announcement of its RAGBRAI headliner band Three Dog Night. Hundreds of people dined on hot dogs, chips and drinks as they listened to the band's music that filtered throughout Fuller Hall.

Mayor Janet Adams announced that T-shirts will stay at $12. She anticipated that more than 2,400 T-shirts will be sold. Many residents donned their yellow apparel in conjunction with T-shirt Tuesdays in Webster City.

Entertainment Committee Member Kent Harfst said that the committee could not yet announce the two opening bands for Three Dog Night. He said that one band had a local connection and the other was a popular regional band that played hits from Journey, REO Speedwagon and STYX.

Avilahn Edwards, 7, of Webster City, enjoyed a hot dog at the 'Free Dog Night' event held Tuesday at Fuller Hall.

"You could probably Google our hints to find out who it is, like people did with Three Dog Night," he joked.

Chamber Director Carrie Fitzgerald said that the committee is currently looking into ticket options and would announce in the future when tickets for the concert would be available.

"Of course, if you wear your $12 RAGBRAI T-shirt, that will be your ticket into the concert," Fitzgerald said.

Kent Harfst, member of the executive committee, said that housing is still needed for RAGBRAI riders. If people are willing for riders to camp out in their yards, they are asked to contact Fuller Hall at 832-9193.

Volunteer forms are still available and can be found at
