It’s hard to believe it is August already. So
that means the Art & Balloon Festival is just around the corner.
The Park District has partnered with the City of Lincoln and is
offering Sidewalk Chalk Art again. You may register at the
Park District and we ask that you do so by Sunday, August 17 during
regular business hours. Artists will be informed of their location
via a phone call. You may plan on drawing your art work on
Thursday, August 21. Each registration will include chalk and
sealant. Only chalk should be used, NO crayons or markers. You may
enter as an individual or as a team/classroom.
Join us for our Second Up Up & Away 5K on
Sunday, August 24.
This run will be timed by the Bloomington Lake
Run Club. Your bib number must be visible at the finish line to be
considered for awards. Awards will be presented to the top male and
female winners along with age group winners; 19 & under, 20 – 29, 30
– 39, 40 – 49, 50 – 59 and 60 and over.
Cost for the run is $20.00 if registered by
August 15. $25.00 after August 15. Packet pick-up (t-shirts and
goodie bag) will be Friday, August 22 at the Lincoln Park District
Fit Zone between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. or at the Sunday morning
check in 7:30 – 8:30.

Color Guard to cheer runners/walkers down Railer Way!
This is a fun, fast course that will begin in
the Park District parking lot, continue down Railer Way, left on
Home Avenue, up the hill and back to the Park District. Before the
race enjoy a motivating cardio warm up & stretching exercises.
During the race have fun at the awesome water balloon stops! After
the race load up on healthy snacks and water along with more water
balloons. A fun morning for the entire family!
