Cedar Rapids Main Street

Celebrate 10 years of Main Street on the Bridge of Lions!!!
Czech Village New Bohemia Main Street District’s 10 year Anniversary – the actual date – is during the 42nd Annual Houby Days festivities. What better way to commemorate this special occasion than to celebrate on the Bridge of Lions? The Bridge of Lions itself is marking it’s own anniversary this year with 30 Years serving the District as the connection between New Bohemia and Czech Village.

We kick the festivities off with a Proclamation from Mayor Brad Hart at noon, as well as with delicious cupcakes for all (as long as they last). Papa Balloon and his friends will be creating balloon fun for you and your family to add to the day’s fun!

Help us decorate!!! Write what you love about our Main Street District and decorate the Bridge of Lions with colorful chalk designs.

Have you ever wanted to experience the Kolach Costumes from the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library? They will be available to take photos in for the ultimate Czech Village Photo Opp.

We will have space on the bridge to “experience the district” with Eduskate Board Shop showing you how you can customize your own skateboard. Lindsay from Eduskate Board Shop will be onsite screen-printing District t-shirts. The iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio will be showcasing wheel demonstrations. Gnarly Pepper will be demonstrating and sampling their delicious dips!!!
