I once lived in a town in Ontario that had an actual town-wide homecoming party every July. They closed down three blocks of the main drag and setup stages and tables for a crowd that often exceeded 15,000. It was quite something to see so many friends and family reunite for that one weekend.

The Downtown Davenport Partnership's 'Street-Fest' scheduled for this coming weekend is being billed as "The Quad-Cities Biggest Homecoming Party."

Street-Fest will be take place on 2nd Street between Brady & Ripley in the heart of downtown. The weekend festival will feature food & drinks, dozens of Arts & Crafts vendors, and great live music. KIIK 104-9's Tami Seitz will be singing with her band The Blackstones on Friday between 4-5:30pm.

The best part is that admission is free.

Here is a link to the Street Fest webpage with a complete list of all the events taking place this weekend.
