City ready to accept Carhenge tourist attraction

Posted: Updated:

Council members in the city of Alliance are preparing to accept what some call one of the wackiest tourist attractions in western Nebraska. 

On October 1, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony as the city accepts the gift of Carhenge from the group Friends of Carhenge.

Last month, the Alliance city council voted four to one to accept the gift.

And the council isn't waiting to fix up the attraction.

City Manager J.D. Cox says the city is expected to initially put out about 15–thousand dollars on groundwork.

Visitors Bureau Director Kevin Howard says after the ceremony, crews will begin the clean up phase.

"We're going to be moving, raking, picking up any garbage we might find out there. We're going to be cleaning up some old posts, trimming some trees." Said Howard.

Howard says throughout the year Friends of Carhenge will have fundraising projects for the attraction so that money raised will go towards any future improvements.
