A yearslong dream for several Iolans will be celebrated Saturday with the grand opening of the King of Trails Bridge.

The pedestrian bridge spanning Elm Creek along South Washington Avenue connects Iola proper with the Lehigh Portland Trails complex, Gates Corporation and other points south.

The 2 p.m. ribbon-cutting will include a free bike helmet giveaway, snacks and comments from several of the collaborators.
