Middle Of Nowhere Festival Brings Community Closer

AINSWORTH, Neb. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s easy to be merry in the middle of nowhere.

From July 7-9, the town of Ainsworth, Nebraska, will nearly double in size when as many as 2,000 people come to celebrate the 25th Annual Middle of Nowhere Festival.

Despite its nickname, the festival is loads of fun.

Owing to its out-there location, the festival features events you might not find at your typical party, including a skillet toss, turtle races, and a cow chip throwing contest.

The festival also features traditional favorites like a carnival, parade, ice cream social, and country western dancing that bring the small community even closer.

Linda O’Hare, executive secretary of the Ainsworth Chamber of Commerce, says, “Geographically we’re in the middle of nowhere, but that doesn’t have to be negative. It’s all in how you look at it. We have a camaraderie you don’t find anywhere else.”
