Plattsmouth, Hamburg and Otoe residents had great time over the weekend despite cancelled events at the 91st Harvest Festival due to rain
OTOE, Nebraska — The weekend brought much-welcomed rain, as well as events in Plattsmouth, Hamburg, and Otoe, which were greatly appreciated.
The 91st Harvest Festival, which is the one with the longest tenure of any harvest festival in Nebraska, had to cancel several of the events due to the rain.
Fred Ulrich and Lily Roby have been crowned as the new king and queen of the Harvest Festival.
At this year’s Popcorn Royalty Coronation, held at the Colonial Theater, this year’s Popcorn Queen, Roxanna Snyder, and Popcorn Princess, Rease Refleng, assisted in the crowning process.
Layla Christian, Athena Shane, and Lexie Walker were in the running for the role of Princess.
Gracee Thompson, the daughter of Chad and Alisha Thompson, has been crowned the Popcorn Queen for the year 2022.
She is a member of the National Honor Society and has had a position on the student council. In high school, Thompson participated in a variety of extracurricular activities, including athletics, cheerleading, band, and choir.
The Hamburg Community Schools senior has decided to pursue a career in midwifery after attending nursing school.
This year marked the first time that the Otoe Barbecue included a tractor drive to raise money for Kilee Oetjen, who is undergoing treatment for leukemia.
After the rain delay on Saturday, event organizer Tom Heller from Syracuse stated that he was satisfied with the number of participants.
Heller: “I had high hopes, and it far beyond my expectations.” Excellent attendance for such a worthy cause.
There were approximately 70 paid entrants for the poker run, and there were 30 automobiles participating in the 24-mile trip, during which participants had the opportunity to draw a card at five different locations. Prizes are awarded to the highest three poker hands.
