Despite the rain, those wanting to attend the 24th annual Bank of the West Celebrates America Concert at Omaha's Memorial Park Friday evening started lining up before dawn Friday morning to secure a good spot for the show that starts at 6 p.m.

They came with blankets, chairs, tarps, whatever it takes to stake their claim near the stage, though actual stakes are not allowed. The free concert includes performances by Uncle Kracker, Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray and Blues Traveler. Omaha's Talbott Brothers open the show scheduled to go until 10 p.m. and followed by fireworks.

Parking is available on the UNO campus after 4 p.m. and north of the park on the east side of the streets.

Last year, Loverboy and Pat Benatar drew a crowd of nearly 75,000.
