RECtoberfest Insta

Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation is excited to announce RECtoberfest, a free event created for local teens to get together with friends and enjoy an afternoon of outdoor fun. RECtoberfest will take place in Valley View Park on Saturday, October 19, from 1 – 4 p.m. 

RECtoberfest is a fun-filled combination of carnival games and field-day activities designed to increase awareness around Council Bluffs Parks & Recreation and to increase socialization, physical activity, and recreation participation among teenagers in the community. 

“We have identified a need to engage our local teenagers and provide them with more options for entertainment and recreation,” said Parks and Recreation Director, Vincent Martorello. “The interests of kids ages 12-18 were carefully considered when planning RECtoberfest activities. The lineup includes a live broadcast from KGOR, several games, competitions, prizes, and even a selfie booth.” 

RECtoberfest features a lineup of activities centered around socialization and physical activity including a 25-foot rock climbing wall, an X-Treme Challenge inflatable obstacle course, nine holes of miniature golf, as well as several games and competitions including tug-of-war, potato sack and three-legged races, kickball, yard games, and many more. Airbrush tattoos and a selfie booth will also exist at RECtoberfest.

Admission to RECtoberfest is free. Participants will earn tickets for every activity they complete. Prizes include one year of Culver’s Custard, movie passes, gift cards, and more. 

All participants must have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian. You can complete the RECtoberfest Waiver early and email to Kelsey Bocken ( or sign it at the event.
