Nebraska State Fair Finds Solid Ground in Grand Island

I think most would agree the new State Fair location was well received and the Fair well attended for the first time out the door in Grand Island.  While a bit more spread out…it offered something for everyone.  The Game and Parks had several offerings available this year and I think that was pretty good understanding we had no infrastructure or staffing in the area.   We hosted a booth in the 4H building, turkey hunting, wildlife viewing, camping, fishing and other activities in partnership with UNL Cooperative Extension and the time-honored archery range where a few thousand youth, families, etc. launched their first arrow.  2010 is in the history books but I would have to say that the new location was a hit and we are looking forward to next year!

Get Em’ Out There
