Local entertainers Kalimbaman and the Yahoo Drummers will be the featured musicians for the season finale Party in the Park event, scheduled Thursday, August 11, 2016 at Mercer Park, at 2701 Bradford Drive. Festivities are scheduled from 6:30 to 8 p.m. with a special appearance by the Eulenspiegel Puppets at 5:30 p.m., prior to the start of Party in the Park.

In addition to live music, there will be games, arts and crafts projects, and frozen treats. This is a no-fee event and is open to the public. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and join other neighbors for the fun!

Party in the Park is sponsored annually by the City of Iowa City. A party is scheduled in a different Iowa City park each Thursday throughout the summer until August 11, 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.
