Waterloo event organizers cancel waterskiing

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Organizers of My Waterloo Days have canceled a popular waterskiing show because of high water in the Cedar River and muck left behind by flooding.

Janelle Darst, the event’s executive director, tells the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (http://bit.ly/15lwrdB) the show that had been planned for Sunday can’t be held because the river is too high and the current is too fast. Although water has receded, there also isn’t time to clear away mud and debris from Cedar River Park, where people watch the show.

Event organizers say they will move dragon boat races to Riverview Recreation Area.

Hot air balloons and other events are proceeding as planned.

My Waterloo Days began Thursday and continues through Sunday.
