MUSCATINE, Iowa–The 12th annual Community Block party returns to the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center on Friday, Sept. 9, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The Block Party is free to the public and features over 30 local organizations with resources and activities to share.

The first 400 in attendance will receive a ticket redeemable for a free hot dog and chips meal sponsored by Hy-Vee and water sponsored by the Salvation Army of Muscatine County. Parking is available at the Discovery Center with overflow parking at Crossroads on Houser St. MuscaBus will provide a free shuttle to and from Crossroads. The MuscaBus will also offer free shuttle service from other areas of Muscatine for those who schedule before the event. Transportation can be scheduled by calling 563-263-8152.

Following the isolation created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Block Party looks to bring community organizations, service groups, and resources together for a night of fun and games at the Discover Center. Beyond the night of fun, the planning committee hopes the community will take this opportunity to connect with valuable resources and volunteer opportunities as we look to foster post-pandemic connections with the community we love. Crowd favorite activities include bounce houses, fire trucks, the In Plain Sight trailer, music, and balloon animals joining newer activities, including rock painting, noodle crafts, and friendship bracelets. With over 30 organizations in attendance, including Muscatine County Conservation, The Community Y, Musser Public Library, UnityPoint Health, United Way of Muscatine, and Muscatine Center for Social Action, there is something for everyone.
