I didn't stay for the egg-drop contest where contestants had to catch a raw egg dropped from a crane (the construction equipment, not the bird) or the hard-boiled-egg eating contest (because...ewww) but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the chicken show. We were able to take in a quilt show in town as well.
There was so much to do, we ran out of time! Next year, we'll get there earlier. If you're looking for something interesting to do in Nebraska the second weekend of July, start planning your 2017 visit now.
