Loessfest Events Scheduled For This Week Cancelled
Council Bluffs, IA - Loessfest’s Music and Movie in the Park that was scheduled for Wednesday, May 29, will be postponed. The Rumbles concert, as well as the showing of Grease at Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park, will be rescheduled for a later date. The weekend rain, a threatening forecast for Wednesday evening, and rising river levels caused city officials to postpone the event.
The “Rumble on the River” soccer tournament scheduled for this weekend will still take place, but it will be held at the Council Bluffs Recreation Complex.
Loessfest has been a success so far. An estimated 27,000 people experienced the park through the three days of concerts and activities over the Memorial Day Weekend.
The Movie in the Park, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, planned for Wednesday, June 5, is still scheduled to take place. The final events, Bluffs Bash Family Weekend - full of bands, arts, food, antiques and bounce houses - will still happen on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band of New Orleans will play on June 8.
As soon as a new date for the Music and Movie in the park event is determined, the city will alert the media.
