The Lincoln/Logan County
Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Integrity Data, has created a new
mobile app for the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival to help festival-goers
have all the event information in the palm of their hands anytime, night or
day. This free mobile app is designed to help festival guests maximize their
experience and time at the event.
"We are hoping that the mobile app
will help enhance the experience for guests to the festival," said
Andi Hake, executive director of the chamber of commerce. "Finding a
way to better communicate with our guests has been an ongoing
challenge for years. It is our hope that many people will download
the new app and find answers to all of their questions and help
prepare them for the weekend's festivities.
"We couldn't have accomplished this
project without the help from Integrity Data. Patrick Doolin made
the process of getting all the data in this app and all the many
decisions that go along with creating something like this seem less
daunting than I had originally expected," said Hake.
When the app is downloaded, the
viewer can look at the festival's schedule of events at both the
Logan County Airport and downtown Lincoln. Viewers can see which
artists, crafters, wineries, breweries and barbecue competitors will
be present. The app also has a section dedicated to the hot air
balloon pilots, even featuring pictures of the hot air balloons and
a biography of each pilot. In addition, the new app gives
information on the live entertainment that will perform downtown and
at the airport.
Guests can set their own schedules
in the mobile app to help them plan for the weekend's events, get
notifications about balloon flight and glow times, and receive any
other pertinent information that may be released during the weekend.

Out-of-town guests at the event can
find information about the community, directions, hotels and
restaurants to help them navigate through Lincoln. And if that is
not enough information, the complete festival program can be viewed
under the documents section.
The mobile app is now available for
download and is available for both iPhone and Android. All other
phones can view a
website that will give them the same information.
