The Freedom Festival is excited to bring back the new, improved and renamed building event, the Building Block Extravaganza at the Newbo Market. The event consists of several play stations and building block activities! This event is FREE !

*All building blocks are to be used on site ONLY and not removed from the event. 

This event coincides with the Freedom Festival's Parade (through Newbo/Czech Village), and IMAGINATION Square (outside on Newbo Market lawn). SO much to do in Cedar Rapids on the 4th of July weekend and all you need is a button*, thanks to the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival and their community sponsors! Thank you for supporting all these amazing events!
