The 30th annual Iowa Rabbit Festival is coming your way in March and we have your exclusive first look at this year's entertainment lineup.  This year's festival is also moving.  This year's festival will be located at the Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles for a huge two day event!

The Iowa Rabbit festival has moved the festival inside the Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles and it will take place on Friday, March 18th and Saturday March 19th.

They have moved it because the past few year's the weather has taken a toll on the festival causing them to not be able to take advantage of raising enough money to help all the orginanizations they would like to. Plus with bad weather and it being an outdoor event it caused party goers to not show up due to inclement weather.

The mission of the Iowa Rabbit festival is to raise money for the youth and various local organizations in the Iowa and surrounding areas.  Personally I think it is a great move.  This way the weather isn't a facotr and all the money raised still goes back to the Iowa and surrounding areas organizations.

Here is the line up for this year's 2016 Festival:
