    Autumn fun
in Nebraska
fills calendar
By Kelly Anders
Staff Reporter
Last weekend it was the Harvest
Day Celebration in Lincoln. This
weekend it’s “La Vitsef," a city-wide
parade and dance in Norfolk When
will all the autumn fun end?
Not for a long, long time.
On September 21-25 in Omaha,
River City Round-up will be held at
Ak-sar-ben and the Central Park
Mall. There’ll be a parade, games, a
rodeo and a chili cook-ofT. The 5th
. Annual German Festival is also
scheduled late in the month in
downtown Syracuse. There’ll be
music, folk dancing, soccer and
October 1-2, the Country Music
Festival will take place in Fremont
at the Christensen Field Parks and
Recreation Department Audito
rium. October 17-22 there’ll be
another Country7 Music Festival in
Hastings at the Fairgrounds.
The Brown vine rail Festival is
scheduled, but no date has been
set. At the end of the month, on Oct.
27, the Updowntowners will host"
1 lalloween in the Haymarket” at the
Candy Factory on 8th and P streets.
The Omaha Autumn Festival is
scheduled for Nov. 4 - 6 at the Civic
Auditorium. Artists will show
works with autumn themes. Also
early in the month, date as yet
unannounced, people will gather
for the River-Front Marathon and
Ten-Kilometer Scenic Race in

HORSES from Page 12
crazed man al a craps table, I contin
Bad luck really struck in the third
race — I won. That was the worst
thing that could happen to a novice
like myself It was a $3 return on a $2
ticket for a horse called Punkin
Tuner. 1 must have gotten cocky.
I did not win again the rest of the
night. I placed bets in the next five
races and lost in them all.
It’s really not that bad because 1
had auite a lot of extra money
smoldering in my pocketand $27 is
not all thatbad. I did not have to sell
my car or hock my watch. Besides,
I don’t suppose I’ll be going to the
races again really soon anyway.
I’ll just have to log this one in the
big or book of experience and
move along in my life.
But heck! I had a good time. And
that’s what horse racing is for most
Lincolnites: a good time
As autumn chums along and the
nights become nippier, you might
want to slip on down to State Fair
Park and test your equine savvy.
You may have better luck than I did
and perhaps you’ll come home with
a few extra bucks. I bet you’ll also
have a good time.
But don’t base your bet on the
bright orange silks — they lost me
money all night.
