It's summer in Iowa so you know what that means...road construction. And like many areas, we have some too. So we did what we do best and added even MORE entertainment! So plan accordingly or better yet, beat the traffic and come early to enjoy pre-show music by Tim Bryan, A Special Event DJ ( The fun begins at 5pm every night followed by LIVE bands on the Classic stage at 6pm, great entertainment, and of course...those gorgeous balloons!
