[May 16, 2016]
- The city of Lincoln recently announced plans to bring
family-friendly activities including music, food, and fun to the
downtown area each third Friday throughout the summer. The first
themed event in the "3'd Fridays Downtown" series will take place on
Friday, May 20th between the hours of 5:30pm and 8:30pm with the
theme being "Game Night".
"Game Night" will not only provide entertainment for the
community but it will also create an opportunity to meet others,
listen to live music, and enjoy fun activities for all ages.
Visitors are encouraged to stroll through the vendor market to see
what merchants have for sale and explore the downtown area to see
all that it has to offer. Be sure to visit our downtown stores; many
of which will have extended hours to accommodate some late night
Children who get excited over big toys will love the "Touch-A-Truck"
showcase each month. This month will feature military vehicles
provided by the Illinois National Guard. Kids can also learn about
bicycle safety at the Bike Rodeo hosted by the Healthy Communities
Activities for "Game Night" will include giant versions of popular
games such as Jenga, Kerplunk, Twister, Connect Four, and Tic-Tac-Toe,
to name a few. Local residents are also hosting a 3-hour only Bags
Tournament for those who are a little more competitive. The cost is
$10 per team with prizes going to the top teams.
Once you've had your fill of activities you can fill up your stomach
with pizza by the slice for $1, provided by Sorrento's, Little
Caesar's, Pizza Hut, and Dominoes. And for dessert Culver's will be
serving $1 scoops of frozen custard.
