Outdoor Fun at RECtoberfest

Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation announces RECtoberfest! RECtoberfest is a free event created for local teens to get together with friends and enjoy an afternoon of outdoor fun. RECtoberfest will take place at Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park on Saturday, October 15, from 1 – 4 p.m.

RECtoberfest is a fun-filled combination of sports and field-day activities designed to increase awareness around Council Bluffs Parks & Recreation and increase socialization, physical activity, and recreation participation among teenagers in the community.

“We have identified a need to engage our local tweens and teens and provide them with more options for entertainment and recreation,” said Recreation and Events Manager Daniel Bettmann. “The interests of kids ages 11-18 were carefully considered when planning RECtoberfest activities.”

RECtoberfest features a lineup of activities centered on socialization and physical activity, including an inflatable basketball game, disc golf, lacrosse lessons, lawn games, and live music with DJ Sweetlife.

Admission to RECtoberfest is free. Thanks to a generous donation from Hy-Vee, water and soda will be available at no charge. Blue Penguin Shaved Ice, Taqueria Santa Anita, and Jimmy’s Hot Dogs will be on-site with concessions available for purchase.

For additional details and regular updates, find our event on Facebook @CityofCB.
