Mel Tillis Encore at State Fair

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday August 28th was "Older Nebraskans Day," at the Nebraska State Fair, and the fair brought back a performer who nearly caused a riot among seniors back in 2010.

The unloading zone was well staffed today as bus after bus brought seniors to the fair, and many came to see Mel Tillis.

It was 2010 when thousands were turned away from the Mel Tillis show and that's why each year since the fair has featured two concerts.

Robert Penn and Mark Ring were among thousands at the Nebraska state fair... showing up for a quieter fair day. Ring said "We came on the bank bus, we didn't have to drive or anything." Groups around the state including banks and homes brought seniors on busses to the fair. 

Chelsey Jungck, is the Events Director for the State Fair, she said "The day is called older Nebraskans day, it's a huge success."
