[December 17, 2012]  The clock is ticking and the days are numbered before your Christmas shopping must be complete. With that in mind, Main Street Lincoln invites the public to continue to enjoy historic downtown Lincoln throughout the remaining holiday season. With Christmas fast approaching, downtown businesses are ready for shoppers.

Downtown Lincoln will continue to be alive with the hustle and bustle of shopping and holiday cheer. Shoppers can enjoy the convenience and pride of shopping locally.

Santa will make appearances downtown one more time, on Saturday, Dec. 22. That day he will start off at the Lincoln post office from 10 a.m. to noon, continue at the Lincoln Fire Department from 1 to 3 p.m. and finish up at Kroger's from 4 to 6 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to bring their youngsters and cameras along to see Santa, with photos welcome at all locations. Those keepsake snapshots are prized possessions for years to come.

Main Street Lincoln, a volunteer-driven organization, is pleased to participate in the holiday shopping season, promoting eateries, antique stores, thrift stores, one-of-a-kind shops, nightlife and entertainment, along with plenty of services and businesses. Stroll the festive streets, peruse the wonderful shops and find those Christmas treasures along the way.
