Another event has been forced to move due to flooding: the annual BMX Fest. 

It's usually held at the Davenport Skate Park, but had to relocate to the Quad City Expo Center.

The 'fest' featured vintage and custom built bikes, freestyle shows, and a swap meet all for a good cause.

All the money raised from the event goes towards donating bikes to kids in need.

"Our goal is to get kids off the couch away from video games...get them into a sport.. you know it promotes health makes them get out and make new friends. It's something that everyone can do," said Nick Ziegler, Director Midwest BMX Fest.
