Archway returns to hosting events
Kearney monument brings back annual event series for Summer
KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) -The Archway in Kearney is getting back to one of its staples: hosting events.
The monument that spans over I-80 is welcoming musician Dan Holtz on Sunday, July 12 as part of its Soda Fountain Sundaes series. The series of events typically runs each year with one performance per month, however after being shut down due to the coronavirus, and not reopening until June 1, the series got delayed. This is the first event The Archway is hosting since reopening.
Dan Holtz will perform on Sunday to a smaller crowd than would typically attend one of the events. That’s because The Archway measured off six feet between seats and put a strict limit on room capacity to ensure safety of attendees is being prioritized. Masks will not be required for anyone who attends the event nor are they required for anyone visiting The Archway.
Sunday’s event is something the staff felt was ready to return but knows it may not last if things turn around in regard to COVID-19.
“I mean, I’m excited to get the events back, get them going again, but that’s probably one of the first things that would come to a halt again if things were to get worse,” Jillian Eply, Event Coordinator at The Archway, said.
Following Sunday’s event there will be root beer floats, which are typically self-serve, but will now come pre-made for attendees to decrease the amount of touch among items.
The event begins at 2:30 p.m. and is free.
