The 19th annual Iowa City Jazz Festival continues today and Sunday on the Pentacrest in downtown Iowa City. Multiple food vendors are set up along Iowa Avenue and Clinton Street in front of the Old Capitol, along with the dozens of great restaurants and cafes in the downtown area. This event is one of my favorite weekends each summer – good music, good food, and great atmosphere. Fourth of July Fireworks will be take place after the last of today’s performances, usually around 9:30. I’ll be glad to be in Iowa City again this year for the 4th, as the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival fireworks display this year is only at Kirkwood instead of downtown.

88.3 KCCK-FM is broadcasting the festival live. Check out to listen online.
