For the fifth year, Davenport Parks and Recreation and B100 Radio will sponsor Family Fest on Saturday, May 14th from noon to 3pm, at the River’s Edge, 700 W River Dr, in Davenport. The event is free!

Family Fest is an exciting event for family members of all ages designed to get families out and in motion. Families will enjoy games, entertainment, crafts, and a variety of group activities on the indoor turf at the River’s Edge. Davenport Parks and Recreation instructors and camp counselors will be at the event to offer a sampling of other summer Parks offerings, and will be available to answer any questions about other Parks programs.

After Family Fest, participants are invited to grab their bikes and join the Parks Director for a "Ride with the Director" bike tour along the riverfront trail to hear about parks projects and other upcoming projects that will be completed this season. Helmets are required.

Family Fest is a free family event kicking off Quad City in Motion Week. Quad Cities in Motion Week is a week of activities, May 14-21 to challenge all adults to get active. Everyone is encouraged to walk, bike or bus to work each day during the week. Free bike and bus transportation will be available all week on Transit, CitiBus and Metro.
