"There's going to be lots of things going on--outdoor, indoor--kind of that nice mixture of things going on," said OACVB Director Mark Eckman. "Something to be able to--now that we've come out of a long winter--it's great to be thinking about the summer months, how warms it's goint to be, and how much we're going to be looking forward to fall when it's all done."

Events must occur in Wapello County and be open to the public.
