The cities of Minburn and Waukee were just two of the many surrounding areas celebrating the Fourth of July on Thursday.

Despite the steamy weather, families showed up in droves to witness the annual parades.

Kids like Logan Peterson, 9, Luke Wellet, 9, Cooper Chiafos, 9, and Nick Wellet, 6, were eager to catch candy and get soaked by water guns at the Waukee parade held at the Waukee triangle.

At Minburn’s parade, Jaylee Zika, 3, of Adel and Melanie Link, 2, of De Soto pick up candy and wave to those in the parade.

Surrounding businesses, government officials, and Miss Iowa Jr. Teen and Miss Iowa were present in the Waukee parade. The 50th class reunion from Central Dallas was in attendance at the Minburn parade.
