[June 26, 2014]  It won’t be long and the 4th of July will be upon us! Join us for all around American fun on Friday, July Fourth.

We invite you to be a part of our 9th Annual Old-Fashioned Children’s Walking Parade. We’ll start taking registrations at 9:30 a.m. at Scully Park. We step off promptly at 10:00 a.m. and walk to the Park District. Decorate your tricycles, bicycles, strollers, scooters and wagons. Walk, rollerblade or grab your skateboard. NO motorized vehicles are permitted (wheelchairs accepted). Leashed dogs are welcome too! Parents and families are encouraged to accompany their children on the parade route. There will be contests, with categories divided by age groups for 12 and under, for the best decorated entries. Prizes are awarded at the Park District.

After the prize presentation stay around and be a part of our annual water fight with the Lincoln Fire Department. While we only have water balloons and they have a truck everyone gets wet and has a great time.

The fun resumes again that evening. Come to the Park District, 1400 Railer Way, and find your spot on the driving range. We will have food concessions available offering plenty of great food for everyone. DJ Kevin Curry will spin the tunes beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Color Guard and fireworks will begin at dusk.

Come to the chicken Dinner this Friday

While we enjoy the fireworks, they are expensive. To help defray those costs the proceeds from the Drive Thru Chicken Dinner are applied to that. You’ll find our volunteer crew at the American Legion parking lot on Friday, June 27th. Cost for the three piece Fried Chicken dinner is $8.00, which includes potato salad, baked beans and a roll. We will start serving at 4:30 and end at 7:00 p.m.

Art classes continue this Saturdy

This Saturday, June 28th, Jody Phillips continues her Art Workshops for Beginners. Jody is a local artist and will be offering classes for adults. If you enjoy painting or would like to try painting a picture for the first time or 300th then treat yourself to an Art Class! No experience is needed and all materials are provided. Cost is $35.00 in district and is scheduled from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
