BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) _ Residents of Broken Bow are set to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a downtown bandstand that has seen the likes of Theodore Roosevelt and William Jennings Bryan.
The Grand Island Independent reports  that the festivities will take place Saturday.   Broken Bow City Administrator Brent Clark says the celebration seeks to elicit a sense of nostalgia and history. Events include a craft and food bazaar. Former Nebraska state Sen. David Landis will re-enact a speech by former U.S. Sen. George Norris.   The bandstand will be dedicated at 3 p.m. by Mayor Cecil Burt.   Clark says the bandstand is important to residents because it’s at the center of many memories.
