The best part of summer is outdoor festivals. Sun, fun, food and music. Our area is blessed with a bevy of outdoor festivals at this time of year.

America's River Festival in Dubuque has a great line-up of music, food and adult beverages set for this year's edition taking place Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9.

Pat Benatar, Night Ranger, and Steppenwolf will take the stage next Saturday night. A craft beer tasting event called The Tappening is also on the schedule.

We'll have pairs of tickets to giveaway to America's River Festival twice a day between May 31 and June 6. Listen for your cue to call at 8:25am with me, and at 3:25pm with Rob.

Here's a link to entire festival line-up.
