[July 28, 2017]
- On Friday evening the extreme heat in Lincoln may have
hindered the turnout for July’s Third Fridays Downtown. However,
those who were in attendance endured the heat with water!
Early in the evening the majority of the crowd
consisted of youngsters playing on the two water slides set up on
Broadway, or taking a shot at the victim sitting in the dunk tank.
Another inflatable involved climbing uphill, and some youngsters
were rotating between it and the water games.
Another unique game was going on at the intersection of Broadway and
Kickapoo streets involved a volleyball net, but no volleyball. While
no one could quite define what the game was, those playing seemed to
be having a good time at it.
The evening also included frozen custard for sale from Culver's
Restaurant, and Joe Ryan of Country Financial was busy grilling hot

The Boys Scouts were on hand again selling food, and Meghan's
Lemonade Stand was a busy location.
There were other food offerings and live music throughout the evening.
The city fire department also had trucks on hand, and a few folks enjoyed
checking those out.
