Hello!

An immensely fun week downtown will get rolling when the WQPT- Brew Ha-Ha takes over LeClaire Park on Saturday!  Enjoy award-winning beer tasting, comedy by The Blacklist, and tunes by Minus Six.   Also on Saturday, plan to bring the kids down to Modern Woodmen Park for Healthy Family Day.  This fun-filled event features activities including the always popular NFL Punt, Pass, and Kick Competition!

 

Just down the road, the Celtic Festival and Highland Games will be taking place in Centennial Park on Saturday afternoon as East-West Riverfest wraps up. Enjoy performances by Celtic bands, workshops, and educational presentations for all ages. Getting married soon?  Pop over to the Budget Bridal Fair at the German American Heritage Center on Sunday, too.
