Officials say registration is now open for the Iowa Games. The summer sports festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Iowa Games executive director Jim Hallihan, says it’s a little later than normal as they have developed a new website. He says they are also sending out information in an attempt to generate interest.

He says they sent about 40,000 flyers out to past participants and hope to have people go to the website, or they can fill out the forms and send them in. This year’s event will feature 41 individual and 13 team sports. Hallihan says their goal is to better last year’s number of 15,000 athletes.

The Opening Ceremony will be July 15th in Iowa State’s Jack Trice Stadium.
