Plattsmouth is gearing up for the 77th annual Kass Kounty King Korn Karnival which starts Thursday, September 11, and ends Sunday, September 14.  This year’s theme of “One County, Many Dreams” kicks off on Thursday with the annual Korn Klub Koronation on Main Street of the King and Queen.

New this year to the festivities are Pro Wrestling by the Midwest Wrestling Association on Friday night, a street dance on Saturday night, a competition between local fire departments in the area on Saturday afternoon among other activities. Also, please remember the Friday night parade has been combined with the Saturday night parade for the first time.

There are literally activities for all ages including the kiddie parade which I have been lucky enough to walk in the last few years, the Stepping Saints and Condors Drill Teams from Omaha will be giving a special performance at 9:30 p.m. on Friday night on Main Street. They will then return for the grand parade on Saturday night.

Please note that the location changes of some of the events due to the community center closing. Terry Little’s popular annual Karnival Koffehouse will be in the Plattsmouth Public Library’s auditorium this year. Among the acts already lined up are Dorin and Novich, The Old Krusty Minstrels, Don Jacobson, Brian Wolfe, Steve Reed, and With the Spirit.  Please contact Terry at 296-4170, if you would like to be included so he can give you a time slot. (no walk-ins, please!) 

This is going to be an exciting year, please join in some or all of the activities and join us in celebrating Plattsmouth!

The full schedule is available at the Kass Kounty Korn Klub’s website, with more details and information about our annual festival.
