4th of July in Waterloo is an Explosive Success!
Even with rain in the forecast, the Waterloo Jaycees Fireworks Festival was another success on July 3 for both The Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers AND the people of Waterloo.
Closing down Fourth Street from Commercial to Sycamore Streets, people staked out places where they would watch the firework displays. They ate and talked and frolicked while listening to local bands from 6:00 to midnight.
The Kiwanis Rough Risers were situated in front of the Courier at Commercial and 4th Streets.
The club began selling Kiwanis Kettlecorn at 5:00 and didn't stop until midnight. The demand was high and they rarely had an opportunity to rest their weary bones.
All in all, the club popped ?? pounds of kettleorn and earned $????
