Press release submtited by City of Davenport

Please mark your calendars and join us for an upcoming Halloween tradition at Credit Island. Join Mayor Gluba, First Ward Alderman Nate Brown and Friends of Credit Island for the 4th Annual Credit Island Haunted Island this Thursday, October 11 at 5:30 p.m. as the festivities get underway.

Alderman Brown tells me that there will be a lighting of the bonfire and there will be "christening" of the new trailer that was funded by the Riverboat Development Authority (RDA). I understand that the "christening" will be a unique event called a "pumpkining" where pumpkins will be broken against the trailer.

The trailer is an important addition to the event. It is handicapped accessible and will be used to provide rides to attendees of the Adaptive and Inclusive Dance that is being held at the lodge.

I am including a flyer of the weekend event and activities. As you know, many volunteers work long hours to put together this community event. The proceeds benefit Credit Island. Alderman Brown is your contact.

We look forward to you joining us as Halloween festivities get underway in Davenport.

As always if you have any questions please call. Enjoy your evening.

1989 -- 25 years ago: Some of us who live in the Quad-Cities take the Mississippi River for granted, or at least we used to. But the river is not taken for granted by our visitors. And most Quad-Citians are realizing the importance of the river to this area as increased emphasis is placed on tourism.
