A cool summer activity makes its return
After being canceled last summer due to flooding, hydrant parties will be making a splash again this summer in Council Bluffs and Omaha.
On Tuesday, W-H photographer Corey Perrine headed to Roberts Park in Council Bluffs for the city’s first hydrant party since 2010. Here’s what he saw:
