Other changes include drive through only at both the Pork Sandwich Feed and Flapjack Feed. The Prime Rib Feed will have limited outdoor picnic table seating downtown.

NEBRASKAland DAYS on Parade is still on the schedule as well, although its exact format won’t be determined for another couple of weeks as organizers monitor Directed Health Measures issued by the Governor’s office.

Rodeo tickets will go on sale to the public on Monday, July 13th. Organizers are hopeful that people will purchase ahead of time to cut down on wait times outside the arena.
