BROKEN BOW—Traditional Irish and Scottish music entertained audiences in the Broken Bow City Square during the first Third Thursday event of 2019. Matthew Gurnsey, the Kilted Man, traveled from Colorado to share his Celtic instruments and “tales of wayward voyages and unrequited love.”

“What a joy to see everybody together in Broken Bow and a beautiful evening. It’s fun to be here,” Chamber Administrative Assistant Joni Kaczanowski said.

Many food and craft vendors remained in the square during the evening festivities after the first Market on the Square of the season, selling goods and offering some samples. Adams Land and Cattle served as the business sponsor and JolRan Dance & Gymnastic Academy students also performed.

Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Deb Kennedy said Thursday was a phenomenal day and looks forward to the rest of the season.

“It’s been a phenomenal day. We just are very proud of the vendors we had and of the crowd we had. Matthew Gurnsey was fantastic and then our JolRan kids were so awesome,” Kennedy said. “It was so great to see them get to use those skills and show off a little bit. It’s been a great night.”
