Cedar Valley Pride Fest brings thousands to downtown Waterloo

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 

The Cedar Valley Pride Fest wrapped up in Waterloo Saturday.  The event that celebrates diversity and community featured 12 hours of entertainment along West 4th Street.  One of the events is a drag race - a competition where competitors race to dress in drag. 
"You take off and you sprint from one side, you get your shoes on high heels and then you come back to the other side and you put a dress on and tie it all up then you run back to the other side and put your wig on and come back to and that is your finishing mark," said participant Joshua Tiedgen.  The winner of this year's race was Bryce Muschick of Waterloo.  Organizers say they saw increased attendance in the event's 2nd year.  Planning for next year's event is already underway.
