WATERLOO (KWWL) -

In Downtown Waterloo Saturday there was an extra splash of color.

The 4th Annual Cedar Valley PrideFest was in full swing until midnight.

The festival features live music, food, drag shows, and roller-derby performances.

Organizers say since the event started, there has been a lot of support from the community.

"We want to showcase Downtown Waterloo as a fun, vibrant, eclectic, diverse, excepting place where people of all backgrounds can find a home and enjoy themselves," Jeff Kurtz, Pridefest organizer.

The goal of the event is inclusion.
