Showed How Proud I am of Oakland and Serving the Citizens at Burt County Fair Parade


The weather was perfect Sunday to walk through the Burt County Fair Parade! I (Denise Gilliland, owner and editor of Kat Country Hub and Oakland City Council President) walked through the parade showing the citizens of Oakland how much Oakland means to me and how dedicated I am in serving each and every citizen of Oakland. It was wonderful seeing everyone at the parade and throughout the fair every day! I was also so blessed to have such wonderful people walk through the parade with me. I couldn’t have done it without them! My daughter, Whitney Tran and her husband Tri and their daughter Penelope, whom we spoil every chance we get, came early Sunday and helped us get everything ready to go! Our best friends Connie and Russ Peterson also came and helped out. They are truly great friends! Also, I just can’t thank Nebraska Senator Lydia Brasch and Oakland resident James Moseman enough for all they have done! They have been by my side, giving advice and helping me along the way. I appreciate each and every one of you so much! Thank you all!

Social Speaks: Favorite Part of the Burt County Fair


With the Burt County Fair just a few days away, I am curious, what is your favorite event or part of the fair?

  • Denise LeAnn Marr-Gilliland I will get the ball rolling. Jeff and I love going to both kitchens to eat and the cattlemen’s bbq after the parade, which we love too. Most of all, we feel like it is a reunion of the county, seeing many people we haven’t seen in a while!
  •  Diane Thomas-Greckel 4-H Kitchen. !!
  •  Jackie Black My girls love the dog show!!!
  • Kay Gibbs Kommers Used to be the demo derby…the best was the figure 8 races…
  •  Lauri Bundy Canarsky Since Leonard & I met at the fair like 100 years ago, it’s a family event for us. We always have our camper in the park as a home base for us all to gather & gives Larinda a place to stay.
  • Bev Case Landholm Love Fair food! Enjoy any of the 4-H events the grandkids are on. Beef show Sunday and of course the parade.
  • SueEllen Hammer Bullarama.
  •  Lisa Parcel I love every part of the fair. The livestock shows,walking thru all the exhibits, the entertainment, the parade, the beer garden, seeing all the people, but most of all the 4-H kitchen. I don’t have to cook the whole fair.
  •  Brenda Pearson Every thing also!!!! See people you only see once a year.
  •  Jane Olson Love the parade and the Cattlemen’s BBQ. This year they’re having a rodeo aren’t they, I’m looking forward to attending that.
  •  Mary Alice Pearson I enjoy it all. Has been so much a part of my life for so many years Love it..
  •  Susan Penke I agree with Lisa. It wouldn’t be the Burt Co Fair if you didn’t walk up and down that HILL see everything and everyone!
  •  Linda Carlson it is all just great and to me means the official end of summer. It was s much fun watching my boys show livestock and Mindy take 20 items for the Smiley Belles.
  • Jackie Rooney Guenther Bull riding. .. ride rank for a cure!!
  • Bobette Toalson 4-H exhibits and seeing all the familiar faces! We will miss the fair this year, but our hearts will be there.
