LDN -- Top Stories

With the August theme for Third Fridays Downtown Lincoln being 'Adventure Night,’ the most popular items at this month's downtown celebration were the rock climbing wall, the laser tag, and of course, the off-road vehicles! This month the downtown event may have had some competition with the Illinois State Fair, but none-the-less, those who came out had a great time. Another big attraction this month were the two balloon artists who made some amazing hats and other balloon art for the kids and the kids at heart.  LDN will have additional coverage from Third Fridays Downtown in the Monday edition.
