The City of Omaha Celebrates America concert and fireworks spectacular drew more than 60,000 to Memorial Park on Friday evening, June 28. The popular summer event, produced by the City of Omaha and sponsored by the Omaha Parks Foundation, featured headliners Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, with Special Guest Chris Isaak. Local band The Firm opened the show, and an incredible fireworks display wowed the audience as the culmination to the evening.

“Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, along with Chris Isaak and The Firm, put on a great, energetic show that had everyone on their feet,” said Mayor Jean Stothert. “We are proud to have been able to continue this fun tradition, and to support our Nebraska neighbors at the same time. It was the perfect kick-off to summer!”

 

The City of Omaha partnered with Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation during the concert to raise money for its Disaster Relief Fund. Through contributions from community members, the event raised $10,000 to assist Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and rural communities affected by recent storms and flooding. The text line will remain open throughout the weekend for additional donations: Text NEFLOOD to 50155 to donate.
