The University of Nebraska at Kearney in conjunction with the Hilltop Mall hosted Destination Uptown Wednesday evening.
The longtime success of the annual downtown summer event, Destination Downtown, prompted UNK organizers to create a similar outing to welcome students back to campus.
Numerous mall retailers along with additional professional firms, food vendors, musicians as well as service organizations provided fun and entertaining experiences for students returning for the spring 2018 semester at UNK.
