Friday afternoon at exactly 2:12 p.m., the skies opened up over downtown Lincoln and the rain came falling down, and not so gently. Around the square, folks were already gathering for the homecoming parade, and surprisingly, outside of few donning  umbrellas, not many seemed to notice. The awnings on the businesses on the north side of the square offered shelter for many, and it seemed they were going to be there for the homecoming parade, come rain or shine.

At exactly 2:27, three minutes before the parade was scheduled to begin, the rain stopped. A few sprinkles persisted now and again, but for a short while the sun even popped through the clouds. 

When the parade came through town, a few marchers and float riders were a little wet, but spirits were high; everyone seemed to be happy and having a really good time.

Some might say, even Mother Nature couldn't spoil the Lincoln Homecoming Parade.
