Do Valentine's Day weekend right in Valentine, NE!!! Lots of fun activities planned for you!

What are you doing Friday, February 12? How about something appealing? A little dressy? It's the weekend of Valentine's Day, so how about something red? 

The Bull Bash Go Red for Women event will be held at the Cherry County Fairgrounds and will feature the vocal group Six Appeal! 

They do have an appealing sound! Take a listen, and check out those shoes! My, my!!! Oh my!

Your visit to the Red Dress Event includes a fine beef dinner and supports the cardiac rehab unit at Cherry County Hospital as well as the Bryan Health foundation.

Last year the Red Dress Event was crazy fun! Your participation will make this year full of heart healthy cheer!

The welcome flags are out to welcome everyone for this fine weekend of fun!! Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. sign up for the 5K run...or walk...which ever you feel up to, at the Comfort Inn.
The rest of the day poke your head into all the little shops that will have something delightful to offer. They're unique, the people are great, and you just might find your perfect Valentine's Day gift! 

Stroll Main Street and visit with the bull and equipment vendors. There is a lot to learn, and the bulls are gentle giants. 

 The Vets Club hosts the craft show - something not to be missed!

 And there's food available there too...which goes quickly!!! Stop by for the best!!!

 Some of the beautiful crafts you'll find in the Vets Club basement...more are at the Connot Auction Building.

 These are the bulls bashing it on Main Street!!!

Follow the hearts to the Bull Market where the 4-H Luck of the Draw will be held all day long. Tickets go on sale at 10:00 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m., when they begin drawing for the lucky winner! It could be you!

 Aren't they beautiful. If you ask nicely, some will even let you pet their curly fur. I've even had some lick my hand...a little slimy, but still welcomed!

 Our Second Amendment rights are very important and you'll find many ways to protect and arm yourself at the Gun Show located at the Connot Brothers Auction building located on the corner of Macomb and A Street. Craft vendors will also be located here, plus more food!!!

 Nelsen Furniture is the location on Main Street for the Quilt Show. Vote on your favorite, or bring one of your favorites down to showcase!

 Totally love these guys! These gentle giants.
