[July 24, 2014]  LINCOLN - The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce is hosting a meeting on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at noon at Lincoln Christian Church for downtown businesses. All business owners/operators and employees are invited to attend this informational luncheon to gather more details about the 2014 Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival.

This will be the second annual meeting held specifically for downtown businesses to share information about the downtown portion of the annual festival. Last year organizers of the event fielded questions from representatives of downtown businesses and exchanged information about the event. “We walked away from the meeting with a great deal of information that helped guide our planning efforts for this year’s event. One of the big requests that we heard was the desire to have some sort of hot-air balloon present downtown. We’ve been able to secure a tethered balloon to run from the lot behind Lincoln Christian Church” Said Andi Hake, Executive Director of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce.

There are many changes to the downtown layout of the Festival this year. The top priority for this meeting is to communicate these changes and gather any information from our downtown businesses that will assist in the planning efforts and help the festival organizers serve those businesses better.
