It's Spirit Thursday! Thousands of RAGBRAI bicyclists are coming to Cresco at the end of July, and the town is celebrating, with businesses 'gearing up' for the big event by offering special deals if you wear your official Cresco RAGBRAI T-shirt on Thursdays until July 27! Cresco Public Library is also taking part in this promotion: If you wear your official Cresco RAGBRAI shirt OR a green shirt of any kind to the library on Thursdays, we will waive any NEW fines you may have on your library account!
