Milligan's June Jubilee another success!

Blackhawk opened up for Phil Vassar on Friday night.  They played all of their big hits including “Goodbye Says It All” and “Every Once in a While.”

If you don’t like great country music, a good dose of polka served with kolache’s, then you weren’t in Milligan, Neb. for their 30th June Jubilee this weekend.

The weekend started with country music band Blackhawk who had several big hits in the early 90’s before Phil Vassar, who topped the charts with his number one country hit “Just Another Day in Paradise,” took the stage.

Saturday’s events included the annual Rooster Run, volleyball and softball tournaments.  The highlights of the afternoon included the annual pork rib and chicken wing cook off in the beer garden along with the car show downtown.

Pink Kadillac played great dance tunes from the fifties through today in the beer garden Saturday night.

Sunday started with a Polka Mass and breakfast before the grand parade which had a theme of “Sowing Seeds of Greatness for 150 years.” 

With the hot temperatures the crowd was ready to cool down in the beer garden and listen to the Milligan Czech Brass Band before the Czechlanders took the stage.  

The weekend concluded with the annual auction and drawing for a new pick  up.

 Phil Vassar was the headliner at Milligan’s 30th June Jubilee on Friday, June 9.
