Late Summer Fun!

The school year is just around the corner, the corn is detasseled, and the summer season almost over.  There are some great events going on in Tama County to enjoy while the summer sun is still hot.  We’ve got five communities planning big events in the next few weeks. Come and enjoy some big-ticket entertainment in our small town atmosphere.  (For more events from the Tama County Community Calendar click here.)  **Update:  The Meskwaki Pow Wow location has been changed from the traditional pow wow grounds to the Meskwaki Bingo, Casino, Hotel outdoor arena.**

      Yes, the Meskwaki Pow Wow is still happening. The location has changed to the Outdoor Arena behind the Meskwaki Bingo, Casino, Hotel, which is at 1504 – 305th Street, Tama (just off Highway 30 west of Tama/Toledo). Performances will be daily Thursday through Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Thanks for inquiring!
