RAGBRAI® is Just Around the Corner!

With just over two and a half weeks until RAGBRAI riders will dip their tires into the Mississippi, Muscatine is gearing up for the big event!

Residents of Muscatine have several ways they can get involved. One of the biggest current needs is town greeters! Being a town greeter is easy. It involves being present on the day of the event and answering simple questions about Muscatine – and who knows Muscatine better than its residents? You might even be asked to take some quick phone pictures for riders as they pose at the dip site.

Town Greeters Need for RAGBRAI

A volunteer meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. at the Riverview Center, 110 Harbor Drive, for those wishing to learn more about getting involved as a town greeter! If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can sign up to volunteer at VolunteerMuscatine.org.

Best Yard Contest

If you live along the route on Hershey Avenue, you are eligible to enter the Best Yard Contest! Two winning homes will receive a $250 cash prize and one winning business will receive $250 in advertising in the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce’s newsletter. The deadline to register for the contest is July 22. More information about this opportunity can be found here.

Public Art Contest

Do you or does someone you know have a decorated bicycle displayed in your yard? Would you be interested in creating one? If so, you can have it displayed along the route. The person with the winning bike will win $100 Chamber Dollars. The deadline to register for the contest is July 22. More information can be found here.
