The weather decided to kick the winter vibes to 10 this week in the Quad Cities. Now that there is snow on the ground, and we are all in the winter spirit, it's time to enjoy the great festivities that come with it.

The city of Bettendorf invites you to join them for an amazing event for the entire family on February 4th.
