This doesn’t really have anything to do with what my posts normally contain. I just wanted a place to share all the things I’m really looking forward to doing this summer. And, some people have asked for this odd list as well.
So here ya go. After a couple lunch-break’s worth of research, my current tentative “these look fun” Nebraska Festivals through Fall 2014. Let me know if you know of a good one, or have been to one of these and don’t want me to waste my time.
