Main Street Lincoln is gearing
up for the city's annual Christmas parade. The parade begins at 5:30
p.m. Thursday. As in recent years, the route will start at the
corner of South Kickapoo and Wyatt before heading downtown and
around the square.
This year's theme is "A Picture Perfect Christmas." For one lucky

be in the courthouse rotunda immediately following the Christmas

Santa each Saturday between now and Christmas. To see Santa's

Everyone is invited to enjoy the stores and restaurants in
downtown Lincoln during this holiday season. Decorations have been
hung near the courthouse with care, and holiday lighting and music
will be played for shoppers to enjoy as they look for those special
gifts to share this Christmas.
