The people of central Iowa, big town and small, sure know how to plan a good party. All you have to do is show up! Cynthia McClure talks with Maximum Ames co-founders Nate Logsden and Chris Lyng about the third annual music festival in Ames, featuring over 100 acts in four days from Thursday through Sunday. Then Lori Simmerman of Hubbard, Iowa, a town of 800 in Hardin County, describes preparations for their first-ever Oktoberfest this Saturday, the 28th, complete with the polka band Craig Ebel & DyVersaCo, authentic German foods and costumes, and more drinking games than you can shake a Bavarian walking stick at. Finally, the gang at KHOI invites you to an old-fashioned ice cream social before or after you get your Zombies on at City Hall. Plus! An update on the ACAC bicycle rack design contest.
