Loessfest 2014 Kicks Off This Weekend

May 23, 2014

Loessfest was initiated last year by the Council Bluffs Parks Department to be a signature event at Hanafan Park, on the eastern side of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.

Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh says the celebration kicks off this Sunday with a three band concert featuring Three Dog Night, Loverboy and The Guess Who. 

Walsh says on Memorial Day, the Omaha Symphony will perform.  He says after their concert, there will be a fireworks show. 

Loessfest runs through June 8th.

"There will be a variety of different events.  We will have everything from a Disney event for kids to semi-pro football to an extreme challenge road race.  So just a variety of fun things for people to do and participate in.”

Sunday’s concert takes place at 6:30 p.m.  The Omaha Symphony performs Monday at 8:00.
