Right before the De Soto Fun Days were about to kick off the morning of Saturday, June 22, it literally rained on their parade.


The parade set for 10 a.m. was canceled but that cloud didn’t stop the rest of the afternoon of events for all ages at Little Bridge Park in De Soto.


Throughout the park, kids found a wide range of activities from balloon animals by “Professor Von Air” Oscar Rosales, a fitness tent with the Dallas County Iowa health department, inflatable slides, art stations for face paint and bracelets, and mechanical animal rides.


After the rain settled in the afternoon, the west parking lot filled with classic cars and trucks for the car show.


Later on, it was time to get wet again with the dunk tank, helping clean off the pie in the face contest.


A game of “Minute to Win It” will be held later in the afternoon followed by an alumni meeting at 4 p.m. At 6 p.m. food and a beer garden will roll out to close the night.
