[November 08, 2011]  Pride of the Prairie -- The Lincoln Park District is presenting the 17th annual Pride of the Prairie Folk Art and Craft Show on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event brings together a collection of the area's finest artisans and craftsmen. Exhibitors are selected for the quality and design of their work. This sale is a great opportunity to start your Christmas shopping.

Shop the Galleria

The park district has arranged for a chartered motor coach for a trip to shop the Galleria Mall in St. Louis on Friday, Dec. 2. The group will leave from the park district location on Primm Road at 8 a.m. There will be a brief "pit stop" on the drive down. Plans are to arrive at the Galleria around 10 a.m., leave St. Louis around 6 p.m. and be back in Lincoln before 9 p.m. Feel free to bring snacks, magazines or your iPod. No meals will be provided.
