Just in case you missed it, the holiday that Nebraskans can be most proud of is today. Why? Because Arbor Day originated in Nebraska. (Maybe next year I will write a “Flashback Friday” on that!) Many festivities are planned across the state. I missed a few today (sorry – I had originally looked it up in the wrong place!), but there are enough activities taking place the rest of the week-end to still keep you plenty busy!
Arbor Day Festival How could I start at any another town besides the place that it all originated? Nebraska City has activities planned all week-end including a fun run, bake sale, flea market and even a parade. If you hurry, you can catch the two hour carnival tonight.
Lauritzen Gardens TREEmendous Arbor Day Celebration
Tomorrow morning from 9 to 12, you can take a hike and also learn more about trees. Early arriver? The first one hundred groups will receive a free seedling!
Know of any other Arbor Day events? Please comment below or on my Facebook page. Of course, you can celebrate wherever you go! The forecast is good – get out and enjoy! 🙂 I can”t resist ending with a song I remember hearing whenever it was Arbor Day time.
P.S. This also happens to be the Nebraska Science Festival week-end! Even more activities are happening around the Eastern part of Nebraska, and I will write about them tomorrow morning!
