ORANGE CITY, Iowa -- Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, tried her hand at cleaning the streets Saturday afternoon as part of the 79th annual Tulip Festival.

After she and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, declared the streets dirty, she and Mayor Deb De Haan set to work and started sweeping.

Her appearance -- in a Dutch costume -- proved to be a highlight for many of the parade goers lining the streets.
