One of the first events to take place in the Pinnacle Bank Arena Festival Space has been booked.
The Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau has announced that Ford Mustang will celebrate its 50th Anniversary and one of the ways they'll celebrate is with a national Mustang car show in Lincoln, August 8-10, 2014.
"The Mustang Club of America is extremely excited to be bringing another National Show to the Midwest and are pleased to have it hosted by the Capitol City Ford & Mustang Club in Lincoln," Steve Prewitt, President of the Mustang Club of America said.
"This show is typical of the type of event that we hope to attract with the new festival space to the northwest of the new Pinnacle Bank Arena," Jeff Maul, Executive Director of the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau said.
"Access to amazing restaurants, foot traffic, proximity to Haymarket Park and the new entertainment district to the south of the Arena made this the ideal location for the Mustang Club of America. We look forward to showcasing the many changes to the Haymarket landscape and invite all of Lincoln to welcome this event to our community," Maul said.
The show will bring 300 cars from around the country and nearly 1,000 spectators will be expected.
Throughout the three day event there will be food, music, cars and an awards ceremony Sunday afternoon. Visitors will see all years and models of Mustangs from 1954 to current. Mustang Clubs that will be helping include the Mustang Car Club of Omaha, the Platte Valley Mustangs of Columbus and the Rebels Auto Club of Lincoln.
