Catch the fun and excitement of the Great River Tug Fest

This is the only tug-of-war across the mighty Mississippi River. On Saturday from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., barge traffic, pleasure boats and paddleboats yield the right of way to a 2,400 foot, 680 pound rope that stretches between LeClaire, Iowa and Port Byron, Illinois. Eleven teams from each side are formed and the side with the most winning teams takes the Alabaster Eagle trophy for that year.

A family weekend event filled with carnival rides, live entertainment, a huge parade, scenic 5k run/walk, food, arts and craft vendors and one of the largest fireworks displays (Friday night) in the two state area.

Admission on Thursday is free; Friday and Saturday is $5 per person.
