Celebrate CB is a week long celebration of the Council Bluffs community founded by the local school system dating back over 50 years. This annual event is a way for the community to get together and celebrate community pride.

The Celebrate CB committee joined forces with The 712 Initiative back in 2016. Since then we have been partnering to celebrate the community each year.
