Premiere night to feature free meal, music, games

Block party begins Thursday at 5 p.m.

Thursday night, downtown Webster City will be hopping with a full evening of entertainment, food, and games for those who attend the Block Party.

The evening will feature the premiere of the documentary “Made in Iowa,” which was filmed in Webster City. The screenings begin at 6 p.m., and will be shown every 30 minutes. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their reactions to the film and Webster City’s story as Square will be working with Legacy Learning Boone River Valley to capture community response to the film. These reactions will be broadcast then on the large movie screen owned by the city outside during the block party.

A block party will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. in the 600 block of Second Street featuring face painters, a bounce house, kids activities and the Lions Club will serve a free meal of pork bacon burgers, chips and a drink.

Music in the Park will be held at Availa Bank Plaza from 7 to 10 p.m.. The band “Bad Tactics” will be on scene to entertain the crowd. The monthly summer event is being sponsored by the Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce and co-sponsored by Square Inc.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy the musical entertainment, along with an opportunity to showcase local talent in an open-mic format.
