Nebraska State Fair making plans for outdoor concert venue

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) _ Officials say plans are in the works for a new outdoor concert venue at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island.

Station KSNB reports the idea found favor Tuesday when fair officials pitched it Tuesday to the Grand Island City Council.

The proposed venue could cost $10 million and could hold more than 10,000 people in a half covered arrangement. The Nebraska State Fair board members hope the new setting would open up Fonner Park up to more diverse performances and encourage more people to attend the fair at Fonner Park.

Rain caused two concerts to be moved inside this year.
