With camera in tow last friday we ventured to Wilber, Nebraska for lunch. Last friday was the beginning day of Czech Festival, a weekend full of roast duck, dumplings, kolaches, Czech beer, pageants,parades, polka bands and 1000's of visitors to the small town of Wilber--think the population is around 1700. Anyhow, we were there before the masses arrived and actually had a very entertaining afternoon.
We toured the Czech Museum and I found it to be such fun, I hope you do too!! Enjoy.
