Expanded Obstacle Course to Highlight 3rd Annual Riverview Games

Written by Theresa Rose on August 5, 2015

FORT MADISON, IA – The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club will again play host to their annual Riverview Games. The free, family-friendly event has become an annual end of summer ritual for many in the Fort Madison and North Lee County area. From the 4-on-4 adult sand volleyball tournament to the ending awards ceremony, adults and children alike are bound to have a good time.


NEW in 2015 is the expanded obstacle course. Kids will crawl through tubes, walk across a balance beam, weave around poles and bounce their way through a 36’ long inflatable course before making their way to the finish line. Participants also have the opportunity to give their best shot at minute-to-win-games, a football toss, relay races and more. Kids will showcase their skills in age appropriate events and volunteers will validate the time-keeping practices.

This is more than a children’s event! Adults are encouraged to form a team and participate in the 4-on-4 Sand Volley Ball Tournament (teams must be pre-registered to participate) or just sit back and enjoy the cool breezes off the Mississippi River.

Riverview Games will be held from 10:00am – 12:00pm on Saturday, August 22, 2015 in Riverview Park, Fort Madison, Iowa. The Riverview Games Closing Ceremony will acknowledge the winning 4-on-4 Sand Volleyball Team and “best times” for children. Podium placement and award medals will be given. A drawing for prizes for participants will end the day.

The event is sponsored by the Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, Fort Madison Chamber Ambassador Club, Fort Madison Kiwanis Club, Fort Madison Rotary Club and the Fort Madison Lions Club.
