Make some time for family and fireworks this Labor Day weekend with the rescheduled Red, White, & Boom set for Monday, September 1! Featuring the largest fireworks display in the Quad Cities along with activities on both sides of the river, RW&B has fun for everyone.

 

Modern Woodmen Park opens at 4 p.m. in Davenport, so head on out for family activities, the Ferris Wheel, and a showing of the The Sandlot on the big screen at 6:30 p.m. Our friends in Rock Island will be hosting activities at Schwiebert Riverfront Park, as well, starting at 5 p.m.  Fireworks will launch at 8:30 p.m.

 

 Engage in conversation and good fun with local community members tonight at the Figge during PechaKucha Night. Here's your chance to learn a bit more about the hobbies, interests, passions and creations of those right here in the Quad Cities! On Saturday, participate in a lively event that allows you to explore textile methods from around the world in the Figge's World Textile Workshop. What a weekend to broaden your horizons!

 

 With September right around the corner, Bucktown Center for the Arts hosts their August Final Friday tomorrow evening featuring an End of Summer Fling and Gallery Night. Enjoy music, summer treats, and a "Local Art Matters" sale, all while having the opportunity to meet art teachers and sign up for various classes offered at Bucktown.

 

 As school starts back up and summer creeps to an end, make sure you head to one of the River Bandits games tonight or tomorrow before regular season ends! Tonight features half-price tickets and their thirst-day Thursday promotion and tomorrow features fireworks! And, as always, don't forget to get your fresh foods and handmade goodies at the Freight House Farmer's Market Saturday, too!

 

 From bakeries and breweries to museums and music venues, there are tons of hot spots in downtown Davenport that locals love. Help spread the word of your favorite spaces and places by voting for your number one dining location, retail shop, and more through Locals Love Us. After voting, check out their directory to see where other locals love to stop when they're in town.

 

See you downtown!

DAVENPORT, Iowa. (August 25, 2014) – This Labor Day, the Quad Cities community will have the chance to enjoy the Red, White and Boom Fireworks show from Modern Woodmen Park along the Mississippi River on Monday, Sept. 1, when the venue voted the Best Minor League Ballpark in America in a nationwide vote at 10Best.com and USA TODAY will be open for a full evening of fun.
The gates of Modern Woodmen Park will open at 4 p.m. on Sept. 1. Admission is free, but attendees are welcome to make a free-will  donation, which will be split between the Bandit Scholars Program and the Genesis Foundation. The bounce houses in the Bounce QC Kids Zone will be open for free. Beginning at 6 p.m., there will also be free family activities. Event attendees may purchase concessions (no outside food and beverage) at the ballpark, as well as rides on the ballpark's amusements, including the Ferris wheel, Drop'N Twist, Space Camp and the newly expanded zip line.
“The Red, White and Boom Fireworks show is an annual summer highlight in the Quad Cities, and we are thrilled to welcome the Quad Cities community to watch the fireworks for free at Modern Woodmen Park,” said River Bandits owner Dave Heller. “A full day of fun and celebration of the Quad Cities will conclude a great holiday weekend at the ballpark.”

While regular admission is free, luxury suites at Modern Woodmen Park can be reserved with a tax-deductible $200 donation, which will be split between the Bandit Scholars Program and Genesis Foundation. More information is available by calling the River Bandits at 563-324-3000.

Friday, 22 August 2014 15:43

Bethany Baptist Church is serving the QC community again on Saturday, September 13 from 5 pm to 8 pm with its sixth annual “Back 2 School Bash”!

This is a free, family fun event designed to share God’s love, no strings attached.  We will offer “carnival style food” (corn dogs, nachos, popcorn, etc.), kid- and youth- friendly games, a giant inflatable slide, obstacle course, and bounce house, along with prizes, music and face-painting, all free of charge.

The evening will conclude with a special show, presented by Puckett Family Magic Illusionists.  The Puckett family are based in Portland, OR, but perform all across the US.  Their website is www.pucketfamilymagic.com. They present a positive message of love, peace, and forgiveness with world-class quality illusions.  Visitors will not be disappointed!

At Bethany, we are committed to “Loving God, Growing Together, and Serving the World”, which is why we bring this event to our community year after year.  We hope to give families the opportunity to unwind and “cut loose” during the early weeks of a challenging school year.

This is a FREE, fun-filled event for the whole family on Saturday, September 13, from 5-8 p.m. at Bethany Baptist Church, 700 35th Avenue Place, Moline.  We hope to see you there!
