Only two Party in the Park events remain this summer -- Aug. 6 and Aug. 13 -- so if you haven't yet made it out for one of these weekly get-togethers in our local parks, it's time to make plans!

Highland Park will be the site of the next party, scheduled Thursday, Aug. 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The park is located at Highland Avenue and Keokuk Street. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join fellow neighbors and friends for live music by Bob and Kristie Black, as well as games, arts and craft projects, and ice cream. This is a no-fee event and is open to the public.

Party in the Park is sponsored by the City of Iowa City’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Neighborhood Outreach Division, giving residents a chance to enjoy their summer evenings outdoors with friends and family while exploring the City’s many beautiful natural spaces and neighborhoods.

For more information, contact Joyce Carroll, Parks and Recreation Department Arts Supervisor, at or 319-356-5100, or Marcia Bollinger, Neighborhood Outreach Planner, at or 319-356-5237.
