Nebraska State Fair is Full of Family Fun
By Gail Leino

Itís held every year from late August until early September in Lincoln, Nebraska. Yep, itís the state fair and itís full of family friendly activities.

Visitors to the state fair who can stand it might check out the Bee Exhibit in the Ag Hall on the grounds. Its open class so just about anyone with a bee hive can enter them into the competitive and comparative exhibit of several bee hives.

Parents can find lots of activities to keep the kids engaged in the Kids Zone. For a realistic milking experience check out the Fiber Glass Milking Cow. This interactive faux dairy cow allows kids to try their hand at milking without running the risk of hurting a real live Bessie the Cow. Hendricksís Animal Petting Zoo offers kids to get up close to many kinds of animals such as the ponies, camel, and lots of goats. Family contests like water balloon toss and jump frog contests provide a chance for kids to compete in their own events.

Thereís also the National Pastime Sports Exhibit for Sports fest 2006. The interactive games and activities include a course of tackling dummies and hurdles, and a chance to throw that perfect pass to the receiver. You can also learn about the history of sports in America.

Free concerts offered at the fair are varied in genre to give the visitors the best chance of finding something that will interest them. There are Christian Music Bands, Country Music Singers, Hard Rock Head Bangers and Vocal Crooners.

The Grandstand offers up paid entertainment that can range from musical groups to Rodeos. They also occasionally hold a haunted house on the second floor of the Grandstand. Many enjoy going to such events as the Monster Truck Nationals.

A campground located near the fair can make it very easy for the visitors to fully enjoy their visit to the fair by making the most of their hours and giving them more than one day to check out the fair. The fair also conveniently offers a shuttle service to and from the fair.
