Cost is $7 per ticket and advance purchases may be made at Lincoln
Park District headquarters. All proceeds from the dinner will be
used to offset the costs of Lincoln's fireworks.
On Saturday, be a
part of the Old-Fashioned Children's Walking Parade. Meet at Scully
Park downtown. Registration begins at 9 a.m., judging at 9:30 and
the parade will step off at 10 a.m. The route will go from Scully
Park and end at the Lincoln Park District complex.
After the prizes are awarded, stay for a fun-filled water balloon
fight against the firemen and their fire truck. Even the mayor will
be on the other team. There will be almost 1,000 balloons, so you're
guaranteed to get good and wet!
Sunday, July 4, kicks off with Splashapalooza -- games, prizes
and lots of fun at the Lincoln Park District pool and on the deck
from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be games for kids of all ages.
Beginning around 7:30 that evening you are invited out to the
park district grounds for the annual fireworks event. DJ Kevin Curry
will play tunes, and you can enjoy a free slice of watermelon. The
American Legion color guard will present the colors at dusk, just
before the fireworks are set off.
