We told you about Bettendorf's plans for a big 5.27.22 celebration but they're making the next weekend a party too.

On June 4, the Downtown Bettendorf Organization is hosting Be Downtown. It's free and it's outdoors. It will be at the 15th St & State St parking lot. The event will kick off at 9:30 a.m. and last until 10:00 p.m.

It's a family-friendly event that will feature:

  • multiple bags tournaments with cash prizes
  • live outdoor music
  • food & drink vendors
  • children's activities and more

The event will begin at 9:30 with a free 45-minute high-intensity training workout from 1031 Fitness.

The bags tournaments will be at 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. There's no cost to enter the bags tournaments. Check-in for those will be an hour prior to start time.
