Saturday, October 13th was supposed to be a big event in Downtown Marshalltown. Every two years, the Marshalltown Central Business District hosts a Treasures Tour, which invites the public to come see some of the hidden gems in the upper floors of buildings. Unfortunately, the damage caused by the tornado on July 19th cancelled this event. But the Central Business District Board members did not want the day to go without notice and recognition of the progress that has been made in Downtown and all of Marshalltown. The group decided the 13th should be Marshalltown Strong Day, a day in which everyone can support the re-opening of local businesses impacted by the tornado.
This promotion is sponsored by the Marshalltown Central Business District, Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Marshalltown Chamber of Commerce.
