You Won’t Want To Miss This Kool Aid-Themed Fair In Nebraska
Kool-Aid is an almost universally beloved beverage, one that most of us grew up drinking on hot summer days. Did you know that it was invented right here in Nebraska? An enterprising Hastings man named Edwin Perkins developed it in 1927, and it has since taken its place in Nebraska history.
