MUSIC & MOVIES IN THE PARK
Bayliss Park, Council Bluffs
June 12 - July 26
Music & Movies in the Park is a free, 6-week series, of family-friendly summer fun! A broad, far-reaching audience flocks to these weekly events from surrounding communities in Pottawattamie County and beyond including the Omaha, Bellevue and Papillion areas. Both events are hosted in beautiful Bayliss Park. Families not only enjoy the concerts and films, but also the Bayliss fountain, interactive water feature, touchable art and Veterans’ Memorial Wall. Audiences can bring their own lawn chairs or picnic blankets and enjoy the live entertainment for free. The artistic canopy over the stage, “Oculus”, created by sculptor Brower Hatcher, tops off the atmosphere for this family-friendly, cultural experience.
Special thanks to our sponsors! Without the support of Sherry Galvani Bills-Taylor; Veridian Credit Union; Arlo Burk - American Family Insurance Agent; TS Bank; Availa Bank; O Con & Western Iowa Mutual Insurance, none of this would be possible!
