  • Mark Down July 27 For Downtown Concert Rockabillaque

    Amy Sapp for the Western Nebraska Observer|Jul 18, 2019

    Maybe you have driven to Sidney or Scottsbluff to partake in their community concerts downtown. Maybe you moved here from another community and enjoyed going downtown or to the park on a Friday or Saturday night to relax with the locals while listening to some music in the early evening. Maybe you were like me who made sure you were attending any FREE music event so that you could dance the night away (those were my younger years). Either way, it’s a great way to bring the community out! Summer Concert Series has been on my “project boa...

    When we talk about Kimball, tradition comes to mind! Kimball and surrounding communities have an evening of amazing pyrotechnics for years. The locations have changed over the years from Horseshoe Hill, Oliver Reservoir, and the High School; but there has always been some great explosions to celebrate the 4th of July.

The past two years, Karen Robinson, of Larsen’s Jewelry Store, graciously raised money from businesses so that Kimball could once a...
