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 (http://bit.ly/2e8Nq17 ) 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.
