Tara Plaza in Papillion is celebrating its 45th anniversary today with a carnival and live music.
An afternoon celebration will be held from noon to 3 p.m. and will include carnival games, a dunk tank, balloon twisting, face painting, a magic show, a caricature artist and live music from Omaha musician Jason Hinze. Local band Grand Theft Girlfriend will play from 6 p.m. to midnight.
All proceeds will go to Camp Hot Shots and Camp Floyd Rogers to create camp scholarships for children ages 6 through 18 with diabetes.
Tara Plaza was developed by Mike Hogan, owner of Hogan Real Estate, to serve the Tara Heights residential area. Hogan developed Tara Heights to serve the growing workforce of what was then a Western Electric plant in Millard.
