Kool-Aid Days Celebrates Sweet 16

Posted: Updated:

The 16th Annual Kool-Aid Days Festival will be held in Hastings, Nebraska August 9-11. The festival celebrates Hastings as the birthplace of Kool-Aid. 

This will be the 16th year of the festival and there will now be 16 different flavors of Kool-Aid served from the World's Largest Kool-Aid Stand during the course of the weekend, which is why this year's festival will have a "Sweet Sixteen" theme. 

2013 also will include the second year of the Miss Kool-Aid Days pageant. This pageant is a preliminary for the Miss America contest. The local winner will go on to participate in the Miss Nebraska pageant held in North Platte in June 2014.

Rather than taking place festival weekend, the pageant will be held on Saturday, August 3 at French Memorial Chapel on the Hastings College Campus.
