The free-admission event features two stages of entertainment (see sidebar), more than two dozen food and art vendors, and a children's activity area featuring inflatables, face-painting, crafts, finger-printing, games, and a dunk tank.
Other activities are also featured on the grass field, with volleyball tournaments at 10:30 a.m. (sixth and seventh grades) and 1:30 p.m. (eighth through 12th grades), a teenage tug-of-war (noon), Celtic Highland games (1 p.m.), rugby demonstration (2 p.m.), and a cowboy mounted shoot (3 p.m.)
There's also a focus on teen entertainment, with the East Stage being devoted to teen bands starting at 3:30 p.m., with seven bands over seven hours.
Another interesting event commemorating the city's 100th birthday is the performance of a locally written play on Bettendorf's history. Local playwright Mary Louise Speer authored Many People/One Legacy, and the work will be performed Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 2 and 7:30 p.m. at Pleasant Valley High School.
