Santa Claus will be visiting Lincoln to take part in the annual Christmas
parade through historic downtown. This year he has room in his sleigh for one
lucky child to ride along with him and help spread Christmas cheer. If your
child is between the ages of 5 and 12 and would like to enter for a chance to
"Ride Along with Santa," use the form online at
MainStreetLincoln. The winner will be chosen by a
random drawing and will be contacted on Dec. 2 by email or Facebook message.
