Partly cloudy skies kept the weather enjoyable Saturday for the annual Nebraskaland Days parade, which this year commemorated the 150th anniversary of Nebraska’s statehood.

There were 147 entries in the two-hour-plus parade through downtown North Platte.

John Hales was the grand marshal. He rode in a swanky horse-drawn carriage with his wife Jan.

The temperatures remained in the upper 70s as stagecoachs, clowns, horse riders, beauty queens, dancers and equipment paraded through the streets.

The parade began at 1200 E. Fourth, went west to Dewey, then south toward Philip Ave.
