RAGBRAI and Nordic Fest Friday in Decorah!!!! Streets will begin to close starting at 4 a.m. To make this day go as smoothly as possible PLEASE follow all ROAD CLOSED----NO THRU TRAFFIC----DETOUR & NO PARKING signs. With that being said allow your self a little extra time to make your Friday morning commute. Also if you own or know someone who owns a downtown business that usually has vendor trucks deliver products to their store it might be a good idea to remind them whats taking place in Decorah on Friday and plan accordingly. Lastly, there will be NO PARKING along the entire RAGBRAI route. Feel free to message us with any questions. #ragbrai2017 #nordicfest2017
