Mayor’s Independence Day water events canceled due to fast moving river

The water events scheduled for the Mayor’s Independence Day festival today have been canceled. 

Waterloo Communications Director Wendy Bowman says the river is moving too fast for the events. 

The Waterhawks were supposed to perform this afternoon and a lighted boat parade was supposed to happen tonight. 

All of the other events for today, including the firework show, will go on. 

The festival is happening at the RiverLoop Amphitheatre.
