Mud Volleyball shows Pilger uniting
PILGER, Neb. -- Pilger Days continues this weekend, with myriad events for the northeast Nebraska community.
Saturday morning, around 50 people showed up for a mud volleyball tournament. Players ran and swatted at the ball while in the water, all having a laugh together.
Organizer Garrett Lampan said the event showed how united Pilger is, even after the twin tornadoes eight years ago took out half the town.
"It's just nice to get everybody to celebrate just being here and to come back from the tornado with something," Lampan said.
Other events for Pilger Days on Saturday include a senior ice cream & pie social from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., a car show at the same time on main street, and pulled pork at the park from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Sunday will see a cornhole tournament at 1:00 p.m. as well as duck races at the pool at 2:30 p.m.
