Upcoming City Events
August 11 - movie in the park - Ferris Bueller's day off | Huset Park west | 8:30 pm
In this 1986 comedy classic, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, "borrows" a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago as his high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) tries to catch him in the act. 

August 18 - Cone with a Cop | Dairy Queen | 4:30-6 pm

August 25 - movie in the park - harry potter and the goblet of fire sponsored by the sister cities | Huset Park west | 8 pm
The fourth movie in the Harry Potter franchise sees Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) returning for his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, along with his friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). There is an upcoming tournament between the three major schools of magic, with one participant selected from each school by the Goblet of Fire. When Harry's name is drawn, even though he is not eligible and is a fourth player, he must compete in the dangerous contest.

August 27 - Cuts with a Cop/Backpack Giveaway | Moler Barber School (785 53rd Ave)

September 16 - movie in the park - Encanto sponsored by new horizon academy | Mckenna park | 7:30 pm
The Madrigals are an extraordinary family who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a charmed place called the Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift -- every child except Mirabel. However, she soon may be the Madrigals last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.

October 15 - Fire Department Open House | Public Safety Building | 11 am-2 PM
The Columbia Heights Fire Department will host its annual Fire Prevention Open House Oct 15 as part of Fire Prevention Week, Oct 9-15. This year’s FPW campaign “Fire Won't Wait. Plan Your Escape!” reminds everyone to establish or review escape routes from their home in the event of a fire. Knowing exactly where to go when the alarm sounds will help ensure your family makes it outside safely. This is the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week! To promote fire safety, Columbia Heights Fire would like to invite you to the Public Safety Building's fire station Oct 15. Kids, young and old, can spray a real fire hose, meet dalmatians, enjoy free ice cream, watch a fire demonstration, meet local firefighters, and more!

October 29 - Truck or treat | Huset park East | 1-4 Pm
Truck or Treat returns for its fifth year Sat, Oct 29, 1-4 pm, at Huset Park East! Kids and their parents can explore a variety of vehicles, including police cars, fire trucks, tow, dump, garbage and mail trucks, and a school bus. In addition to the organizations that provide their vehicles, Columbia Heights and its City departments will also collaborate with community partners to help make the event possible. Each vehicle station will hand out candy for kids middle-school aged and younger. Recreation will host Puppet Wagon shows. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume. Pets, too! Food and beverages for sale, and free hot cider and coffee on-site while supplies last.
