Kick off your Fourth of July celebrations at the Annual Ice Cream Social presented by the Friends of the Muscatine Art Center. As always, there will be plenty of ice cream, desserts, family-friendly fun and an art fair.
The musical line-up for this year is “Tammy and the Fyffe’s” at 1 p.m., “Gwendolyn Countryman and the Dusty Road” at 2 p.m. and “The Creepin’ Charlies” at 3:15 p.m.
New this year is a book sale and “fun with fruit” – edible crafts sponsored by the Muscatine Hy-Vee.
Families are encouraged to participate in a bike ride from Discovery Park to the Art Center, and kids can decorate a flag for their bikes while at the Art Center. The bike ride departs at 1 p.m. The highlight this year is the dedication of the “E. Bradford Burns Performing Arts Park” on the grounds of the Art Center at 1 p.m.
