[July 24, 2017]
- Once again beautiful Scully Park in downtown Lincoln was the place
for families to enjoy a great time, and all for free.
When the extreme heat of Friday was promised for Saturday as well,
the church prayed. Saturday started with rain. They prayed some
more, according to Open Arms Christian Fellowship Pastor Larry
Crawford. And it worked. The rain and clouds cooled things just
enough to make the tree filled park pleasant enough for lots of fun.
OACF has been putting on the event that draws thousands of families
into the park for a good time together and an opportunity to build
family memories without breaking the bank. The all-free event costs
are offset in part by local business participation.
From 11 a.m. till 6 p.m. there were old-fashioned tossing, putting
and other skill games, which earned participants tokens to claim
prizes the kids loved. Kids also found a park full of inflatable
obstacle course bounce houses. For the waterdogs, a quiet spot
offered a soothing overhead rain shower and nearby there was a water
slide with pool ending. An ahhhh moment on a hot day!

The festival included face painting, a bubbles station and other
And, of course there was refreshments - hot dogs, hamburgers, Sno Kones, cotton
candy and more.
Church members graciously served in every area of the park and did their best to
make the day fun and happy for families.
The main stage offered live musical entertainment in a variety of musical genre
including an excellent Elvis Tribute Band performer at noon.
The main event was scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
Everyone was invited to attend the evening performance when there would be
drawings for a number of valuable prizes announced.
