[November 26, 2013]  Small Business Saturday is an annual shopping occasion following Black Friday. This year, Nov. 30 is Small Business Saturday  a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.

Main Street Lincoln is a supporter of Small Business Saturday. The historic downtown district in Lincoln offers quaint shopping, thrift stores and tasty offerings at restaurant locations.

The public is invited to join Main Street Lincoln, the Small Business Administration and organizations across the country in supporting local small business by shopping at a small business on Saturday.

Also, mark your calendars for the annual Lincoln Christmas Parade, planned for Dec. 5. The parade will kick off at the corner of Wyatt Avenue and Kickapoo Street at 5:30 p.m. This year's theme is "A Picture Perfect Christmas."

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 https://www.facebook.com/
. The winner will be chosen by a random drawing and will be contacted on Dec. 2 by email or Facebook message.
