The Nebraska State Fair Announces No Lines. No Waiting. No Wristbands.

The Nebraska State Fair is once again making the fairgoer experience better by eliminating the need for wristbands for concerts. According to State Fair executive director, Joseph McDermott, This has long been a source of feedback from concertgoers who are unable to take time off work to stand in line to receive their wristbands. He said, Through technology, we are now able to replace the free wristband program with a reserved seat ticketing program for a small convenience fee.
