WAYNE – Bressler-Fest season five is coming to an end as their final music in the park performance will be this Sunday.
Over the past three Sunday’s, community members have been able to find a spot anywhere at Bressler Park and enjoy an evening of music.
Event organizer, Jill Brodersen said Bressler-Fest started out small with their family.
“Now it’s grown to we have sponsors who pay for the bands and the sound equipment,” said Brodersen. “We have a lot of food vendors that come out now and it just has really grown. This nice community of music-lovers and families just out there enjoying the nice September weather that we’ve had.”
Bressler Park is located between West 9th & 10th streets along Douglas and Lincoln with the stage found on the southeast corner of the park. There is plenty of space around the park to spread out as the music travels across Bressler Park.
From 5 – 7 p.m., attendees have been able to enjoy live music during a picnic with family and friends as food vendors are also available.
The first Bressler-Fest opened earlier this month with the USAF Heartland of America’s ensemble – Raptor from the Offut Air Force Base, followed by E-Z-B Combo and recently Brooklyn Bierbower opened for headliner Tegan Nissen.
Blue House from Omaha who has been around for nearly 30 years will perform on Sunday, October 3.
“So, they say groove and blues and a little bit of rock rolled in there,” Brodersen added. “I think this is something that we haven’t had at Bressler-Fest, this type of band. It’s maybe not something that we see around in this area.”
Blue House with the Rent to Own Horns is a Blues band with a rocking horn section that offers plenty of original songs that is performed by seven individuals. This group has also been inducted into the Nebraska Music Hall of Fame.
Brodersen’s goal has been to get a variety of music types in the park.
“It’s just a nice way to get outside and enjoy this fall weather,” Brodersen mentioned. “To end your weekend on a happy note and picnic in the park. Enjoy our beautiful Bressler Park and have some music.”
