2008: "The Year of the River" in Cedar Rapids
Thanks to J.J. Howe.
Related article from today's WSJ: City leaders in Cedar Rapids, Iowa declared 2008 at the "Year of the River" to highlight the riverfront revitalization that has been taking place there. That was, of course, before the Cedar River turned on an American city like few rivers have before.
Note: I lived in Cedar Rapids from kindergarten through 6th grade.
