Orange City, Iowa — Residents of Orange City are rolling out the red carpet for guests this July with white lights.

Niccie Kliegl, one of the volunteers helping out with RAGBRAI, says Orange City is creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere of hospitality for the throngs of cyclists, support crews, and visitors with thousands of white lights strung on homes, businesses, and more.

In addition to creating an inviting ambiance, the lighting will enhance safety for riders and visitors.  They’ll arrive on Saturday, July 22nd and the ride will start on Sunday in the early morning hours as cyclists and crews head out of town. But all those people need a place to sleep on Saturday night.

Since it’s not the holiday season, local businesses have stocked white lights this summer to make it easy for Orange City citizens to participate. Residents are encouraged to “Light it Up!” anytime between now and RAGBRAI, but are specifically urged to have their property lit from Friday, July 21, through the morning of Sunday, July 23.

Complete information regarding Orange City RAGBRAI is posted at ragbrai.orangecityiowa.com
and on the Orange City RAGBRAI Facebook page. The 2017 RAGBRAI is July 23-29.
