ICYMI: The Berkshire Hathaway 6:20 AM Parade

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

I honestly know of no other parade that starts before 10am. Or that is only a block long. And that had thousands of spectators.

In case you weren’t in the crowds this morning for the first ever Berkshire Hathaway parade, here’s what you missed:

Parade

Husker parade

Drum Parade

Stage coachThat’s the whole thing! A parade consisting of four entrants to kick off the shareholders meeting. It was a great touch – it provided some entertainment to those standing in line waiting to get in and a festive soundtrack to the morning.

 

What to do with the rest of your Saturday, Berkshire Shareholders

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

If you’ve left the question and answer session at the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting, or if you’re waiting a few more hours until the end of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger’s always interesting Q&A session, we have some ideas for the rest of your Saturday.

The official Berkshire Hathaway event schedule suggests checking out the NetJets display at TAC Air across from Eppley Airfield until 4:30pm. A shuttle is available – find out more at the NetJets booth in the CenturyLink Center.

We always suggest shopping at Borsheims. We also have a shuttle that runs from the CenturyLink Center to our store – leaving every 20 minutes through 5pm. Nebraska Furniture Mart has one as well.  It leaves every 45 minutes through 10pm.

Nebraska Furniture Mart is where the Berkshire Hathaway Big League Picnic is held.  They have live entertainment from DJ’s Dugout’s Blazin’ Pianos with food from Famous Dave’s, Domino’s, Sonic or Paradise Bakery & Cafe. Tickets are $5 – you can buy them at the door. The event runs from 5:30-8.

If you are looking for places to eat around town (and I know many of you are – I answered a lot of questions about restaurants last night at our info booth), we have a list of great restaurants and I did a blog post with some suggestions for places to eat. Many of the restaurants will be booked up for the evening, but I’m sure some will still have availability.

The Omaha World Herald compiled a list of free and low-cost options for shareholders for the weekend. From free places to view art to great areas for a walk, the list is full of good suggestions no matter what your budget.

Enjoy your evening but rest up for tomorrow’s final day of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend; when Warren Buffett plays salesman at Borsheims, takes on an Olympian in ping pong and gets a few hands of bridge in with his buddy Bill Gates. You don’t want to miss it!
