      Two big events scheduled in downtown Davenport next week are forced to make changes thanks to expected floods. 
     Since LeClaire park won't be ready for crowds Red, White & Boom! events planned there on July 3rd will relocate to 2nd Street between Main and Ripley. The land-based activities will start around 6 p.m. Near the FIGGE Museum. Red, White & Boom! on the Rock Island riverfront will go unchanged. Organizers say no matter how high the river the fireworks will go off as scheduled around 9:30 that night. 
     "All the activities previously promoted will be available. They will simply be relocated," said event chairman Ken Croken.
     The Mississippi Valley Blues festival running July 4th through July 6th will also move. Board members met Tuesday night along with city staff from Davenport and Rock Island to discuss new locations, considering both sides of the river.
     They decided on 3rd  Street in downtown Davenport. Acts originally scheduled for the park band shell will be outside if weather permits. If not, they'll will move into the Great Hall at the Rivercenter. Performers originally scheduled for the tent at Blues Fest will be in the Adler Theater. 
     "You gotta move 20,000 people within a matter of just a few days. With moving all our tents and everything," said Mississippi Valley Blues Society VP Julie Reyes. "No matter where we go we'll have a good time, anybody is invited down. Come support us."
      This is the 29th year for the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival. For more information on that event CLICK HERE.
