Simpson Stadium to host RAGBRAI main stage

The fence is already up around the RAGBRAI entertainment venue.

Simpson College’s Buxton Stadium will serve as the main venue for Sister Hazel and Big Head Todd when they take the stage for RAGBRAI’s overnight stay in Indianola July 23, with a beverage garden in the adjacent Hillman Hall parking lot.

It wasn’t the first choice, admitted Gina Piper, entertainment chair for Indianola’s RAGBRAI committee, but it is turning out to be a good one.
