BEATRICE, Neb.-- "Welcome To Our Home" is the theme of this year's Homestead Days in Beatrice. The celebration began as a collaboration between the Beatrice Chamber of Commerce and Homestead National Monument.
Saturday, festivities continued with the annual parade. People said it's their favorite part. But, they say the activities in the park and at Homestead National Monument are an important part of the day.
"It just shows people we're here and what we have to offer," Candice Jobman said.
Locals tell us they think this is the biggest turn-out for Homestead Days to date.
