â??Yeah it is. It's for families. So you see everybody out. You see all ages, all walks of life coming down enjoying a great afternoon in what we would call our town square. This is Ottumwaâ??s town square and it's a gathering place right between city hall and the library and it's just an awesome event,â?? said Pam Kaupins, South Ottumwa Savings Bank.
