The heat didn't stop the kick off of River-Cade's 50th Anniversary. The ice cream social melted, but didn't ruin other events.

Bands performed at the Anderson Dance Pavilion in Sioux City. And a dance academy showed off their skills.

One of the big draws, the annual smile contest. Kids showed off their "pearly whites" to the judges, River-Cade queen, and her court. Winners received a hundred dollars.

"Not very hard. I was the only girl in my division," said Hailey Watkins, smile contest winner, Akron, Iowa.

Earlier Thursday, the parade downtown. Floats of all kinds walked the streets.
