Fun Things To Do In Omaha May 29-31

It’s getting harder to pick just three things to tell you about. Below you’ll find three fun things to do in Omaha this weekend, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Don’t forget Loessfest is going on (see my post about Disney Day tomorrow with a free concert by The Imagination Movers and a screening of “Big Hero 6”), not to mention the start of town festivals. See the growing list in the post “30+ Fun Things To Do In Omaha In June.”

Where: Along Omaha’s riverfront, 800 Douglas St.

Why: You get to eat food from Omaha’s best restaurants, or just skip those and get the funnel cake because you know that’s what you really want.

Who’d like this: People who eat; toddlers on up (a carnival ride or two is inevitable);

Tip: The festival is FREE, the food and rides are not.
