    One of the gems of our Newton community is the beautiful 40-acre Maytag Park which was given to the city by washing machine guru Fred Maytag. There are picnic areas with shelters for family gatherings, along with walking, biking and Frisbee golf areas. Summer nights you can relax and have a picnic on the grassy area in front of the Maytag Bowl and catch band concerts, graduations, and the annual big event Bowl Full of Blues for Blues artists and fans.

    One of my favorite things about summers in Newton is the Iowa Speedway just south of town right off I-80. Race fans from all over Iowa flock to Newton for the few weekends that races are scheduled. They also have concerts at the track on other weekends pulling in major entertainment, Ted Nugent and rock band Survivor played to a packed crowd last summer.

    Newton took a hit 12 years ago when Maytag closed up shop. But it’s kept it’s head high and has attracted enough new industry and jobs to town that there’s now not enough places to live to keep up with all the new workers. Amazing. New construction is going up everywhere!

    This has been a fun yearly event, the lighting of the Jasper County courthouse for Christmas. It's always the day after Thanksgiving. I remember coming out to do this as a kid and it's just as much fun today, it's a very cute small-town tradition. Despite the messy weather, there was a good size crowd out.
