(OSKALOOSA, Iowa) – Even with cool temperatures, it was just “spring enough” to give The Alley a good spring cleaning Tuesday, April 10. Spring cleaning for The Alley, located in downtown Oskaloosa just off the square between Smokey Row and Bridal Dreams, meant out with the winter greenery, in with the tables, umbrellas and chairs, anticipating another fun filled season.
Many helping hands pitched in for the effort from the Central College Student Volunteers, the Oskaloosa Fire Department, the Oskaloosa Street Department, Alley-friend Harold, Oskaloosa Main Street, and the Alley KADTS. Jaarsma Bakery also contributed tasty goods for the occasion, as well.
May flowers will soon follow the clean up, so visitors and residents alike are urged to stop by The Alley throughout the season and have some lunch or book a party. On Thursdays, beginning May 31 through August 2, live music and wine will be had at 6:00 PM and visitors can also cross the street to the park in the square at 8:00 PM on Thursdays to hear the Oskaloosa City Band.
