‘Field of Dreams’ town prepares for anniversary
DYERSVILLE — Local officials are finishing preparations for this weekend’s party celebrating the 25th anniversary of the “Field of Dreams” movie.
The Dubuque Telegraph Herald says more than 11,000 people are expected to visit the field near Dyersville in northeast Iowa on Friday and Saturday. There will be several special events, including a cast reunion and question-and-answer session and a celebrity softball game.
Star Kevin Costner is expected to attend, as is Timothy Busfield, who played Costner’s brother-in-law in the film, Dwier Brown, who played Costner’s father, and Brian Frankish, the movie’s executive producer.
The movie was released in 1989, after several scenes were filmed at the rural site near Dyersville.
