If anyone has ever accused Nebraska
of being a boring state, they haven't
checked into all the festivals, rodeos,
fairs and celebrations that take place
in the summer.
This year there will be 52 county
fairs, 35 centennials, and oodles of
rodeos, ethnic festivals, flea markets
and arts and crafts fairs.
One event that gets a lot of attention
is Nebraskaland Days in North Platte
held this year June 13-21. The celebra
tion features a mix of western-style fun
and entertainment. Sports fans, food
freaks, arts and crafts lovers, music
fans and rodeo-goers could all find
something to interest them. Events
range from performances by Johnny
Cash, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band,
Nicolette Larson, and the Florida Boys
Gospel Group, to a buffalo burger feed,
a tennis tournament, a senior Olympics,
a rodeo, an antique show to the ever
popular hog calling contest.
Ethnic festivals display Nebraska's
diverse heritage. All feature foods,
dances, music, arts and crafts that
have been handed down from generation
to generation. Some of the better known
are the Clarkson Czech Festival, June
