From July 16 to July 19, horseracing enthusiasts in Omaha and neighboring areas will have the time of their lives. The 12th Annual Live Racing Festival will be held at Horseman’s Park at 6303 “Q” Street.

Year in and year out, this festival attracts a lot of people, not only because of the live horse races but also because of the plethora of activities that are offered. This year, the news is that they have a lot of additions to the already popular roster of activities. One of these is Roberts Dairy “Family Fun Day” on Sunday afternoon, July 19th. Greg Hosch, the General Manager says that Sunday’s Roberts Family Fun Day “is FREE and will include Pony Rides, Face Painting, Inflatable Rides and Roberts Frozen Treats for the Kids!” Now this should be perfect for the family man who wants to spend quality time with his family and enjoy horse racing as well.

There are also a lot of other giveaways, including raffle drawings with awesome prizes at stake. Fancy a trip to Cancun? Or maybe a weekend in Vegas? You just might win in the drawings and get a chance to go on a trip.

The doors open daily at 10 am and there are 5 races set per day. The races start at 2pm so if you get there early, you’ll have time to do other stuff. And yes, the admission is free!
