Alliance Statehood Celebration
February 25, 2017 - March 1, 2017
Alliance Statehood Celebration will begin with a dinner theater at which the play THE ALLIANCE LINE: RIDING THE RAILS THROUGH HISTORY, written about historical events throughout the one hundred twenty-nine years of Alliance will be performed by Alliance Main Street Players. An up and coming musician will perform his recently released CD, Bird or Machine. For the next three and one half days citizens will participate in looking for five Sesquicentennial plaques hidden throughout the community. They’ll use clues received at local businesses. When they find the plaques they’ll take them to the Alliance Chamber of Commerce until the Birthday Bash, where they’ll receive the plaque and Alliance Chamber Dollars. On March 1, 2017 local schools will have events, programs or projects throughout the day. The Birthday Bash will be held at Knight Museum and Sandhills Center where attendees will be entertained by an area accomplished musician. Cake, cupcakes, cookies and all the birthday elements will be served and at the end of the party plaques and Chamber Dollars will be given to winners.
