DILLER, Neb. -- A Nebraska town founded in 1880 is continuing its long standing tradition. 

Diller has hosted its annual picnic for 127 years. The festival spans all across the weekend. 

The event nearly brings in two or three thousand people from all across the state to a town of just around 250 residents. 

Chris Clifford has been the chairman of the Diller Picnic Committee for five years.

He said him and his team plan the event out for 10 to 12 months and get support from 150 volunteers. 

“We have a lot of great volunteers and a lot of great sponsors. A lot of volunteers that do things that we don’t even know about that gets done every year,” said Clifford. “The community of Diller really steps up. They make the town look good.”

The festival includes a tractor pull on Thursday, bull riding on Friday and a near 70 car parade on Saturday.

The event is such a huge deal in this small community, that Clifford said they have already started planning for next year.

You can watch the parade live on News Channel Nebraska on Saturday at 7 p.m.
