Monday, August 21, 2017 – ECLIPSE DAY!!!!

The Festival Viewing Grounds will be set up early in the day so you can pick your comfortable, secure spot from which to experience the Eclipse.

There will be commercial, educational, craft, and food vendors, and even a beer garden complete with local craft brews. A petting zoo will allow children and adults to get up close and personal with farm and ranch animals, and maybe even a few wild animals indigenous to the Nebraska Sandhills.

Before and after the eclipse, trail and wagon rides will be offered to allow visitors to experience life on a ranch in the Nebraska Sandhills.
