Remember: LOTS happening in Omaha this weekend!

  • Saturday May 1: celebrate Arbor Day at Lauritzen Gardens. According to Lauritzen's website: "Families can enjoy a morning of fun activities dedicated to trees. There will be tree activity stations for families to learn about a variety of tree subjects such as bark, leaves and fruit. Family tree walks will also be offered at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon. Each family will receive a free tree seedling while supplies last. Registration is not required, and all activities are free with paid garden admission or membership."  So you DO pay regular admission to the Garden, but then all the extra activities are free!
  • Saturday May 1: celebrate Cinco De Mayo with the 25th Annual Parade on 24th St starting at 10 am. There are a number of other event going on in conjunction with this. Please see their website here. As a note, we have friends that participate in this parade every year and it is the highlight of the year in their home! We have not been yet, but it looks like a blast! And the Parade is free to view!
  • May 1 & May 2: Nebraska Renaissance and Medieval Pageant at the Bellevue Berry Farm. Not free, but looks like a blast. According to their website though you can get a family pass (for a family of 4) for $25, which is a good deal! Make sure to check out their website.
  • All Weekend: The annual Arbor Day festival is going on in Nebraska City Friday, Saturday and Sunday! For more information please see the Nebraska City website here.
