Council Bluffs RAGBRAI Invites You To Kiss A Pig at Main Street Market


June 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The local Council Bluffs RAGBRAI organizing committee is inviting the public to the 100 Block of Broadway and the Main Street Farmer’s Market Thursday, June 13th, for a special treat: It’s your opportunity while shopping for fresh vegetables and homemade crafts and goodies, to kiss a real live pig!  Josee Beier, RAGBRAI Hospitality Chair and Director of Convention and Sports Sales for the CVB, says “For just $20, you can kiss a real pig, get a T-shirt, and pick up a youth bicycle helmet for your child at the Main Street Market.” 

The bicycle helmets are a public donation by Safe Kids Loess Hills and FAMILY, Inc. while the supply of helmets lasts.  The local safety committee of RAGBRAI, titled Ride Right, will also have free bicycle safety information just in time for summer.   

The pig is from an area farm- a perfect animal for a Farmer’s Market.  The T-shirts are the official Council Bluffs RAGBRAI  event, and bicycle safety and helmets are so important for all of us anytime, but especially in the summer. You’re invited to come by the Main Street Farmer’s Market Thursday, June 13th, starting at 5-pm on Broadway.  KISS A PIG, take a photo, buy some produce, pick up a kids bicycle helmet and learn how to be safe.
