"Heatin' Up the Bricks" Lands 'Success' in Kearney

Posted: Updated:

Even with the light snowfall in Kearney, The Buffalo County Fairgrounds remained hot as "Heatin' Up The Bricks" moves into the area. 

Over 40 teams showed up at the event; out of 42 that registered. Committee members say they had participants from seven different states, which some see as a success, considering this is their first year hosting the event in Kearney. The competition is judged by over 40 judges, and sponsored by seven vendors. City officials say when events make their way to Kearney, everyone sees the benefits. 
 
"So it just means that Kearney is becoming more well-known for all the things we have to offer. We don't just offer one little thing; we are just well-rounded, and have something to offer for so many people...and that's what we want to do," said Betty Warren, chairman of the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce.
