Braylee Griffith and Ella Hahne weren’t going to let a little rain slow them down during the first Kid Parade on Wednesday night in Williams.

The first Williams Fourth of July Kids’ Parade and Cook-Out was held Wednesday night on Main Street. Iowa Falls Bank hosted the cook-out that served close to 200 people, despite the soggy weather. “We usually hold our customer appreciation in Iowa Falls, but because this is Williams’ 150th anniversary, we thought it was a great way to give back to the community that has supported us all these years,” said explained Iowa Falls State Bank Vice President/Marketing Director, Crystal Doering.
