Grassroots Musical Festival

The Grassroots Music Festival produced some of the greatest mixed performances at Tom Hanafan’s River’s Edge Park.

The lines were packed and fans were more than eager to get by security. Once the music started bumping and people gained access to the park, the festival took a different spin.

Thousands of fans crowded the stage to catch their favorite artists – Mac Miller, Logic, Blue Oyster Cult, Kid Cudi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lupe Fiasco. The incredible performances warped the crowd into one continuous surge of energy. Arms were raised high and everyone danced and vibed along to the beats.

When fans plugged themselves into the music, problems  were left at the door. – Kelsey Benzel

It Feels Good to be Alive

Good ‘Ol Fashion Floating


If there’s one thing you need on your Bucket List, it’s to have some good ol’ fashion floating fun down the Elkhorn River.

Some bathe in it and some hide from it, but the summer sun is here! Sadistic as it may be, I can’t get enough! Add drinks, music, great conversation and a body of water and you’ve got yourself a party.

As long as you’ve got the essentials (tube, life jacket, sunscreen, drinking water, snacks, your fav beverages and your party hat) you’ll have a blast. You can book your adventure through a rental service or just grab what you need from the sporting goods store.

Sit back, grab yourself a cold one and soak up those sun rays – just get back to nature – Lewis and Clark style! – John Sliffe

Our Boys of Summer – Bringing the Thunder


The Omaha Storm Chasers, our back-to-back Triple-A National Champions, had 18 of our boys playing in the MLB’s 2014 World series. They are truly a quiet storm no more.

This week, the team plays host to the Triple-A All-star game, including a home run derby. Several of our players are expected to suit up including pitchers John Lamb and Louis Coleman.

Not only are they phenomenal players, but they are civic minded as well – contributing hours of service to area nonprofits.

From volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, to disaster relief fundraisers, to visiting fans in the hospital – this is our roster. Civically engaged, champions. They make us proud.

Zydeco Festival – Midtown Crossing

You could instantly feel the energy pouring out of Midtown Crossing as we made our way toward the pavilion. The smell of cajun jambalaya and music filled the air. Mix that with some dancing and a finale firework show that blew us away and you have a night that you won’t soon forget! Pretty stoked for next year! – Jessica Perreault
