Nebraska State Fair to open in Grand Island

GRAND ISLAND -- Six years ago, the Nebraska State Fair was in such sad shape in Lincoln that premium payments to winners of judged events had to be canceled.
Friday, in a huge reversal of fortune, the fair will open in its new $40 million home at Fonner Park.
Jana Kruger, state fair board member from Arlington, beamed Thursday as she watched vendors, exhibitors and clean-up crews hustle and bustle to beat the deadline of 5 p.m. Friday for the start of the 11-day event.
"I'm so excited to have people come and see the beautiful new grounds," Kruger said.
