    Callaway proclaims itself to be the Kite Flying Capital of Nebraska, and so far no one has challenged them. Just a couple of miles east of town on highway 40 sits the lonely hill shown in the photo. But in the fall it is not so lonely there as a huge kite festival is sponsored by the town. Both novice and expert kite flyers come from far and wide to show their skills and their sometimes elaborate kites. There are many activities in and around the town and a good time is had by all.*

    In 2006 the Kite Flight will be Sept. 2nd through the 4th. Cost is free to watch, $20 per family to fly a kite (includes a t-shirt). In 2005, 135 families registered to fly kites, and there were about 2000 spectators.

    Callaway is in Custer County, named for that most famous of all Custers, none other than General George Armstrong Custer. Today Broken Bow is the county seat, but in 1876 the very first county courthouse, built out of logs, was erected near Callaway. Fortunately it has been preserved and today it sits in the middle of a wonderful shady park in this town. The park would be a great place to take a break from your trip and have a picnic lunch.*

    If you are from the city, you might be surprised to see some unusual forms of transportation on the roads of rural America. Here is one such vehicle seen just outside the town of Callaway, Nebraska.

    But don't worry, its just another type of farm equipment making its way from point A to point B. The driver will probably give you a friendly wave, so be prepared to wave back.

    What to buy: Callaway has a nice selection of shops for a town of its size. Judging from the number of autos in the picture, there must be some business being done!

    Sometimes its nice to get out on the gravel roads and see what you can see. This pastoral scene was found about two miles north and a mile west of Callaway.
