What’s Up Omaha

Are you looking for some fun things to do in Omaha this weekend?  We found a couple fun things for you and your Monsters to enjoy!

Sand in the City

Why go to beach, when the beach can come to you?  This weekend, June 10th through the 12th, Nebraska Children’s Home Society’s Sand in the City is being held at the new Baxter Arena!  At Sand in the City you can view 15-ton sand sculptures created by local Omaha corporate and community groups!  Vote for the “People’s Choice” winner, watch master sculptors work right in front of your eyes, play in the Kid Zone, watch live entertainment, and more!

Not only can you take your family to see some amazing sand art, you can help raise funds for Nebraska Children’s Home Society, providing safe homes to children throughout the state.

Pack some sunscreen and a trough of water...it’s going to be a hot one, but hey...you’ll be at the beach.  We’re starting to think someone should sculpt our very own Creative Monster out of sand...
