Crews cleaning up after three-straight outdoor concerts at State Fair

By  | 

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- We've seen three-straight days of major acts, and the action heads indoors later this week at the Nebraska State Fair, which has crews in clean-up mode Monday.

The expectations were sky high for the outdoor concert series, especially coming off of last year's success with Keith Urban and Jerrod Niemann.

With the 2016 outdoor showcase now complete, organizers are again thrilled with the end product. Monday marked clean-up day for crews on the grounds at Fonner Park.

The concerts don't pick back up until Wednesday, and many people have their eyes on Friday, which is when Hannah Huston takes the stage for the first time since her time on The Voice.

With a few days of downtime between concerts, however, it's giving State Fair Events and Entertainment Director Chelsey Jungck time to reflect on the past three days.

"It was a great weekend," Jungck said. "We were very fortunate with the weather. We had some great crowds, and some of the tweaks that we made from last year worked out very well and helped us out - helped the crowds out I think. It was a good weekend, good experience, and we're glad that everything went off successfully."

Jungck went on to say she also expects to continue the trend of getting A-List performers to make a stop at the Nebraska State Fair.
