On Friday afternoon a second
ribbon-cutting for the 40th annual Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival
took place on Wyatt Avenue, just prior to the annual pilots parade.
As the parade participants
lined up, there were some very important figures at the beginning of
the lineup. Among them were Jim and Nancy Ireland, who were
this year's grand marshals. 2013 Logan County Fair
Queen Crystal Quint and Little Miss Celia Cross were on hand,
and Lincoln/Logan Chamber of Commerce director Andi Hake and her
staff were also among those taking the lead on the parade.
Also very important to the
parade were the entries, which included the pilots of the balloons
will participate in this weekend's activities at the airport.
The parade began on Wyatt and
wound its way through the downtown area, then went north on Kickapoo
to the airport.
