A special musical festival in North Platte Saturday helped kick off Memorial Day weekend.

The mini-festival Regency Retirement featured several local musicians, following the vein of the Earth Day festival at the same location.

The Flat Rock Irregulars, Tragic Martha, Levi Most, the James Burke Trio, Al Raby and Big Dan and the Jellystingers performed. 

Wine and craft beer was provided by Pals Brewery, with food by Early Bird & Second Mouse BBQ as well as the La Pachanga Mexican restaurant.

Children played on the spacious lawn while adults visited. Some people tossed a hula-hoop as they boogied to the music.

This is the first year and organizers hope to host more.

“A lot of people enjoyed themselves,” Regency General Manager Jina Maleksarkissians said. “They told me they are happy to see this in our town, and they would like to have more of these events happening here.”

“It was family-friendly, for all ages,” she said. “It’s good when generations intermingle. We have things to learn from one another.”

Maleksarkissians hopes to have another in July after Nebraskaland Days, possibly at Lake Maloney.
