Traditional summer events across north Iowa are making comebacks this summer after COVID-19 forced cancellations last year.
Tuesday (06.08) and Wednesday (06.09) marked the return of “Dairy Days” in Fredericksburg. “Party in the Park” hosted by the Charles City Chamber of Commerce is back from 5 to 9 p.m. tonight (06.11) in Central Park and features an “Old Timey” theme with live music by The Tony Rook Band, a bluegrass band from Minneapolis. Admission is free, but Chuck Chips are required to purchase food, beverage and carnival games.
Heartland Days also returns this weekend in New Hampton starting tonight (06.11) with a parade at 6 p.m., plus live music by The Dweebs from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Festivities tomorrow (06.12) start at 8 a.m. and continue throughout the day with The Vic Ferrari Band live from 8 to 11:30 p.m. and fireworks at dusk.
