Looking for a free family-friendly activity this weekend? Then look no further than the 9th Annual Muscatine Community Block Party!

Businesses and organizations from the community of Muscatine join together at the Muscatine Discovery Park (3300 Cedar St. Muscatine) this Friday Sep 7 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. for the 9th Annual Muscatine Community Block Party! This event is free and open to the public.

This year’s block party theme is ‘Take Back the Backyard’, which promotes the idea that families who play together, stay together!
