CF Tiger Marching Band still on for State Fair parade

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Flooding in central Iowa won't stop the Cedar Falls Tiger Marching Band from performing in the Iowa State Fair Parade.

Interstate 35 is closed from Ames south to Des Moines.

Cedar Falls High School principal Rich Powers said the band left early Wednesday afternoon and is taking an alternate route to Des Moines. The band will go through Marshalltown and hit Highway 330 that travels southwest.

Powers says the band has been in contact with the Iowa State Fair committee, and everything is "still a go."

The Iowa State Fair parade begins in downtown Des Moines Wednesday night at 6:15 p.m.

Online producer:  Adam Amdor
