ShakesBEER on the River is a 21 and over beer festival benefiting Nebraska Shakespeare that kicks off summer’s first long weekend. It starts at Lewis and Clark Landing and the Storz Trophy Room - right on the Riverfront. There will be plenty of beer and food to sample -- taste one of several small batch beers including a new one named in honor of Nebraska Shakespeare. Enjoy professional actors performing short, irreverent Shakespearean comedic productions and local musicians like local award winning, seven piece doo-wop and soul band -- All Young Girls are Machine Guns. There will be games like pong, ring toss, washers and contests involving frozen t-shirts. PLUS the grand finale is a boat parade on the Mighty Mo. The boats will be decked out with theme decorations and you'll get a chance to vote on who will be crowned the grand prize winner. A general admission ticket gets you in to enjoy all free beer and food you can reasonably consumer, plus games, prizes and front row viewing of the river boat parade. Patron tickets also available.
