We are fortunate enough to have received a grant from the Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission allowing us to promote and celebrate Nebraska’s Statehood. We are planning activities and festivities circa 1867. Cherokee Ridge Runners, a pioneer rendezvous group, will be providing demonstrations of pioneer life and performing re-enactments, preschool-6th grade pioneer costume contest, Magician Jeff Quinn performing magic tricks featuring Nebraska’s Statehood, pie parlor, quilt show, kid’s kraft korner making projects from 1860’s, outdoor games and activities children played in the 1860’s, a western village photo booth and much more. Along with the fantastic events we have planned to celebrate our Sesquicentennial, we will also have our traditional Springfield Days events. Our Pancake Feed, 5K Run, Grand Parade, Show and Shine Car Show, Duck Drop Race, Ice Cream eating contest, Bubble Gum Blowing contest, Coin Dig at Springfield State Bank and live entertainment round out the celebration. Saturday night – our event concludes with a grand finale fireworks display.
