LDN -- Top Stories

Downtown Lincoln has that special once-a-year sweet, smoky aroma wafting through its streets. Which means it’s Pigs and Swigs Festival time. The festival kicked-off on Friday evening with a great crowd enjoying the pleasant summer-like weather. A steak cooking contest took place plus there were barbecue vendors on hand to supply a wide array of juicy, scrumptious, spiced-up sandwiches, and craft beers to wash it all down, with live entertainment to boot.   Today KCBS contestants will be cooking their entries on the square, and there will again be great food, drink, entertainment and a home brew contest.
