Barrel House Bix Bash Yet another bash is taking place right next door to Bucktown during the 2nd Annual Barrel House Bix Bash!  The outdoor party lasts from Friday through Saturday and they'll be five bands, food, and plenty of fun.  On Saturday, hop across the street to Great River Brewery and enjoy their Golden Ale and Bix Copper Can Release Party, too.
3rd Street On Friday, Mac's Tavern will feature Grinder's Spaghetti and WQAD's Jason Fechner will also be guest bartending!  Outside on 3rd Street, Mac's, Kilkenny's, and Carriage Haus will be hosting FREE live music all weekend featuring Just Chords, Wicked Liz, North of 40, and more.

Friday, 26 July 2013 13:40

Quad Cities, USA: The Salvation Army, Wal-Mart and Johannes Bus Service will host the Third Annual Stuff the Bus Event at all four Quad Cities area Wal-Marts.

DATE: Saturday, July 27, 2013

TIME: 10am – 6pm

PLACE: All four Quad Cities area Wal-Marts

The First Day Project unites Quad City area school supply drives to meet the needs of students who require help in obtaining school supplies. Nearly 20,000 students in Quad City schools are from families with incomes low enough to be eligible for Free & reduced fee waivers for school meals and fees. Some of Quad City area schools have an average as high as 60% of students qualifying for Free & Reduced. The First Day Project will supply thousands of Quad City students with the items they need to start their school year with confidence.

Shoppers are encouraged to purchase school supplies and bring them to the school bus so that our community’s low-income, homeless, or needy children will be prepared on the first day of school. Items needed include backpacks, dry erase markers, loose-leaf paper, spiral notebooks, colored and regular pencils and pencil boxes, pocket folders, pens, crayons, glue sticks, tissues, scissors, erasers, washable markers, watercolor paints and hand sanitizer.

Monetary contributions can also be sent to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, 852 Middle Road, Suite 100, Bettendorf, Iowa, 52722. Donate Online: Go to www.cfgrb.org and click on “donate now.” Donations can be designated to a particular school district if noted on the check.

News Releases - Local Events
Written by Cindy Bruhn   
Friday, 26 July 2013 13:21

There are plenty of fun reasons (in addition to the great shops, restaurants and attractions) to come to LeClaire, Iowa in August. Between events such as First Friday, a car show, craft show, the Tug Fest and live music every Friday, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

On Friday, August 2nd, “First Friday” kicks off the month with food and drink samples at Wide River Winery and the Mississippi River Distilling Co. Enjoy live music outdoors at Wide River Winery by Patchy Fog from 5-8pm, at Grasshoppers by Acoustic Friends from 6-8pm and at the Faithful Pilot Café by The Matriarchs from 7-9pm. Many shops stay open late, and LeClaire Antiques and Appraisals offers free appraisals until 7pm. Aunt Hattie’s Fanciful Emporium and Razzleberries Fine Gifts offer a sweet treat while supplies last. Dine at one of the many restaurants that LeClaire has to offer then join in the fun with Karaoke at Sneaky Pete’s at 9pm and you will have a wonderful evening! For more information: www.visitleclaire.com

On Saturday, August 3rd, come on out to LeClaire to see British cars at the Heartland British Autofest from 9am – 3pm on the Levee. This event was previously held in the Village of East Davenport. For more information: www.qcbac.home.mchsi.com/

Also on Saturday, take in a craft show at the LeClaire Civic Center from 9am-3pm.

Sunday, August 4th, treat yourself to brunch or lunch in LeClaire and then take in the live music at Wide River Winery featuring Jordan Danielson from 2-5pm while enjoying your favorite bottle of wine.

Be sure and join us for Tug Fest 2013 in LeClaire, Thursday-Saturday, August 8-10. Just some of the fun includes a carnival, food vendors, live music, parade and the greatest fireworks over the Mississippi River on Friday evening, 5k run on Saturday morning, and the feature of the fest – a tug-of-war across the Mississippi River from 12:30-2:30pm on Saturday. Even the kids can get in on the action at 11am on Saturday with a Children’s tug-of-war. Admission is free on Thursday; $5 on Friday and Saturday; children under 12 are free. Find all the details at www.tugfest.com

There will be live outdoor music the remaining Fridays of the month at Wide River Winery from 5-8pm. The schedule is as follows: August 9th The Whoozdads; August 16th Pieces of Candy, August 23rd Dan Peart; and August 30th our own Mississippi River Distilling Co. co-owner, Ryan Burchett and the Moonshiners. For more information: www.wideriverwinery.com

The Faithful Pilot Café’s monthly brunch offering is on August 18 with seatings at 10am and 12:30pm. Pick your favorite “first”, “garden” and main entreé from their special brunch menu. For reservations call 563-289-4156. For more information: www.faithfulpilot.com.

LeClaire, Iowa is located at a point where the Mississippi River makes a sharp bend to the southwest. LeClaire's historic bond with the river and the bold men who tamed the Upper Rapids is still visible in the homes and buildings they left behind. On May 7, 1979, their homes were recognized as part of the nine-block Cody Road Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. LeClaire’s other attractions include the Buffalo Bill Museum/Lone Star Stern Wheeler, Mississippi River Distilling Co., and Antique Archaeology, home of the American Pickers.

For more information on LeClaire visit www.visitleclaire.com.
