Pridefest brought crowds young and old to downtown Waterloo Saturday.
Downtown Waterloo was covered in rainbow flags Saturday for the first ever Cedar Valley Pridefest.
Some who came to celebrate were dressed extravagantly, such as Josh and Justin Collins, of Des Moines, who came in green body paint, fairy wings and little else. But most of the crowd came in their normal jeans and t-shirts. Rainbow facepaint and stickers were added embellishments in honor of the occasion.
