A lot of friendly people came out Saturday night for Music on the Bricks on Dewey St. downtown.

The weather was nearly perfect for the night of music, kids games, street vendors, food and brews. More than 1,200 people came through the gates.

Bases Loaded played three sets of the music that people love, showing why they are known as the best dance band in central Nebraska.

In the photo below, taken from the stage, the audience waves hello as the featured band, Bases Loaded, was about to start playing. The band is from Kearney, featuring North Platte native Steve Main on drums.
