Cross the Bridge

Celebrate the grand opening of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. The festivities will take place on Sunday, September 28th.

Here are the details, per the Council Bluffs Parks & Recreation web site:

Free Event! Everyone Welcome!

  • 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

  • Playland Park in Council Bluffs (2 N. 40th Street)

  • Free children's activities, with inflatables, face painters, magicians, and more!

  • Performances by Monticello's Regiment from Thomas Jefferson High School and Omaha Central Eagles Marching Band

  • Ribbon cutting with Council Bluffs Mayor Tom Hanafan and Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey

  • Food and beverage concessions available.

  • Free parking!

  • From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. free wristbands will be placed on the wrists of interested participants in the park. A drawing will be held just prior to the ribbon cutting to determine who will get to be the first person on the Bridge!

I understand there will also be information booth(s) for local cycling, walking, and running clubs.

See you there...
