Business Booms after Downtown Activities
CREATED Feb. 9, 2013
The streets in downtown Omaha are overflowing with fans.
"I didn't expect it to be quite this busy."
"Well it seems like it's kinda crazy with several events going on tonight."
Shoulder to shoulder in red, green and blue the excitement is contagious.
"We've been looking forward to this since they announced it you know and we're very pleased to be able to accommodate our Sioux friends and hopefully beat them tonight."
At TD Ameritrade Park an outdoor hockey rink draws in hundreds of sports fanatics. Tailgaters take over the parking lots, while fans inside cheer for their home team.
"There's the dual hockey game, battle on ice down there so we wanted to hit that up and in between games we thought we'd come over to the home show so great venue, great day downtown."
Across the street the Home and Garden show attracts just as many. Charles and Sam Chadwick want a new patio they didn't expect just how crowded the Old Market would be.
"It's pretty insane it was a little difficult finding parking at first and then we're like we'll just pony up and pay the 8 bucks for parking."
There's no room to breath inside the Old Matress Factory. In a sea of green, two lonely blue jerseys.
Creighton fans are gearing up for the big game.
"Actually I think it's great I think this is a good thing for Omaha a lot of North Dakota fans out here it's pretty fun."
Hoping to have a great night, these fans know the Old Market has plenty to offer.
