Dozens of floats and attractions paraded through the streets of downtown Sioux City Wednesday.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
For 51 years, the Siouxland River-Cade has filled Sioux City with fun and excitement, and this year is no different.
The week-long festival plays host to several events, but the big event took place Wednesday.
The River-Cade Parade took to the streets of downtown Sioux City for everyone to enjoy.
The parade included dozens of attractions and went from 4th and Douglas all the way up to 10th and Pierce and back down to 4th Street.
Included in the parade was the KTIV crew, flinging Twin Bings to the parade-goers.
And then after the parade, the fun continued at the Riverfront Pavilion with an ice cream social, smile contest and karaoke.
Organizers have made a special effort to capitalize on the family-friendly atmosphere of the Siouxland River-Cade.
"You look at the kids' faces and the parents' faces because River-Cade has always been totally family-oriented," "We always try to offer as much for free so people don't have to be paying out money to enjoy it. I'd say so far, so good."
In addition to the many things taking place Wednesday like the fireworks along the riverfront, there are still several events throughout the rest of the week for the Siouxland River-Cade, including the carnival, which is taking place along the riverfront at the soccer fields in South Sioux City every day until Sunday.
