Main Street Ottumwa has a busy season in store

Main Street Director Bob Untiedt

Main Street Ottumwa has a busy season just around the corner with a variety of events to attract people to come downtown.

Main Street Ottumwa's executive director says there will be some new events this year in addition to the organization's annual events like Walk on Art Street and Margaritas for Main. Margaritas for Main brings in 1/8 of Main Street Ottumwaâ??s fundraising dollars. New this year to that event will be a female mariachi band. That will take place on Thursday. Main Street Ottumwa will host a Latin Dance Club night at Tequila Grill on Friday, Sept. 13, and another new fun festivity will be Putting Around Downtown, which will take place in October.

â??We'll do a miniature golf activity that will have people going into businesses around the downtown in teams of four competing actually for prize money,â?? Main Street Director Bob Untiedt said. â??We may have as much as $100 to offer.â??
