Today began the 2 day “Celebrate Lincoln” festival. The kids I headed down there a little after lunch. They had fun playing a few games and were excited about winning a few prizes.
They also enjoyed playing in the bouncy houses.
I enjoyed the fact that from 11-2 on both days, there is free admission. So being outside for a festival worked out well.
They do have a wide variety of great Lincoln food vendors, including HF Crave Burgers, Brix & Stone and La Paloma. We ended up not eating down there this time. But if you had picky eaters or like variety, this would be a great opportunity to sample. You pay for the food with tickets that you buy at a booth. They do accept credit cards.
A few key things to keep in mind …
These are the bathroom options – go in advance.
While they do have a balloon lady, the line was REALLY long. So maybe don’t make that promise. There was not a big crowd this afternoon, so my kids could go on any of the bouncy houses (probably 5-6 of them) without any wait time.
One more note: the family zone will close at 8. And children must be with adults after 9 – probably a good call!
CONCERTS: starting at 5:30 tonight, many groups are hitting the stage. Tonight at 9:30. American Idol star, David Cook is on stage. Tomorrow night at 9:30, David Nail is the artist. Come rain or come shine. There is admission after 2, but only $7 per adult and a few dollars for children. Not a bad price at all to hear such great concerts!
So, go out and CELEBRATE LINCOLN!
