Kimball Farmer’s Day Includes Southern Fryed September 27
Have you ever been to Kimball, Nebraska? The small farming town just east of the Wyoming border is having their big annual celebration heading into this weekend and festivities include the local band Southern Fryed. The Kimball Farmer’s Day has lots of old-fashioned small town family fun and most of it is all free of charge, it runs September 27 through 29.
Southern Fryed headline the block party concert from 8 p.m. to midnight on Friday, September 27, with the Stahla-Ford Band opening. They’ll perform by the Post Office at 2nd and Webster St.
This year’s theme is ‘Saluting Men and Women in the Armed Services,’ so wear your red, white and blue.
Also on Friday night 6 until 9 p.m. see all the cool cars at ‘Cruise Night’ in the Event Center.
The Panhandle Coop Pancake Feed starts the Saturday, September 28, activities from 6 to 8:30 a.m. followed by the annual fun run and the Kimball Farmer’s Day parade begins at 10 a.m.
Other events include grabbing cash while you climb a greased pole, the money toss at city park, a free hamburger feed, lawnmower races, a horseshoe tournament, craft fair, salsa contest and a golf tournament.
Did I mention they have a community theatre melodrama? And wrapping things up on Sunday, September 29, it’s the Farmer’s Day Fun Fly at the Kimball Airport R/C Field. Watch remote control airplanes of all kinds cruising the skies, the Kamakazee Air Show runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Bring back some small town memories with a short trip to Nebraska for this year’s Kimball Farmer’s Day, always celebrated on the last weekend of September.
