Creston on the Home Stretch in Prep for RAGBRAI
CRESTON, Iowa -- Just under two weeks remain until RAGBRAI comes to Creston for an overnight stop. The town is busy doing last minute training and recruitment for volunteers needed to make the event a success. "It’s kind of like the Olympics, that you have to do all of this work, for them it's two weeks for us it's 24 hours, and then they’re gone,” said Ellen Gerharz of the Creston Chamber. “We’re really excited about it to show off southern Iowa, it hasn't been to Creston in 19 years, we wanted to put our best foot forward.”
