past, present and future    
Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 19, 2003]  Lincoln's annual Christmas parade will be in downtown Lincoln on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m. “Christmas Past, Present, Future” is the theme for this year's parade, co-sponsored by the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce and the city of Lincoln.

“The parade theme was chosen to allow participants to either depict scenes from Lincoln's past 150 years or predict future Christmas traditions,” said Bobbi Abbott, executive director of the chamber. “The theme seemed appropriate during Lincoln's sesquicentennial year, as we honored the past yet ‘planted seeds' for the future.”

The chamber is accepting entries from businesses, industry, governmental agencies, schools, civic and not-for-profit groups and religious, youth and charitable organizations. There is no charge to enter. Cash prizes are awarded.

The evening parade around the downtown square features marching bands, lighted floats and vehicles, and military marching units. Groups are strongly encouraged to use motorized vehicles in an attempt to reduce the number of walking entries.

Interested participants may call 735-2385 or e-mail chamber@lincolnillinois.com for an entry form or further information.
