Chad & Kara Hageman

North Liberty


Each fall, Iowa City residents eagerly anticipate the annual University of Iowa Homecoming Parade. Hawkeye fans and UI alumni from points near and far head to Downtown Iowa City to line the multi-block route and watch the parade pass by. The downtown comes alive with black and gold spirit and a special community camaraderie that showcases the University of Iowa and Iowa City at its very best.

Iowa Citians love homegrown foods – the summer farmers market brings together all those who produce vegetables, breads, and so much more in their very backyards, and is a testament to the pride people have in keeping things local.
