DYERSVILLE, IA (CNN)- In 1989, people around the world learned “if you build it, they will come.” And a quarter-century later, thousands are still coming to the Field Of Dreams movie site near Dyersville, Iowa.

On Friday, the field was filled with fans and fathers to celebrate 25 years since the movie’s release. Kevin Costner, who starred in the film, came back to "have a catch" with kids on the field that is now part of the tapestry of Iowa culture. Many families have chosen to spend the Father's Day weekend here.

Saturday is another full day of events, including another opportunity for families to play catch with kids in the outfield, plus celebrity softball games. Also, Costner and others will talk about how the movie impacted their careers and their lives.
