[July 26, 2014]  LINCOLN - The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce with the Lincoln Elk’s Veterans Committee are offering free tethered balloon rides with free admission passes to all veterans in Logan County for the 2014 Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival.

Veterans can stop by the Elk’s Golf Pro-Shop from 8am to 7pm any day of the week., the Lincoln American Legion from 1pm to 9pm any day of the week, and the Chamber of Commerce 9am to 5pm Monday – Friday. There are only 100 ride and admission passes available so they will be available at these locations for only as long as they last.

The passes are available to any veteran in Logan County that has served in any branch of our armed services. Each veteran that comes to one of the designated locations will receive one free weekend admission pass to the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival being held on August 22nd, 23rd and 24th. The admission pass will get one veteran a wristband that will allow him/her access to the activities at the Logan County Airport both Friday and Saturday. Veterans will also receive one free tethered balloon ride pass good for one veteran to ride in one of the weekends main attractions—a hot air balloon. This year we have two tethered balloons, one being sponsored by our local State Farm agents, and the other sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.
