This tranquil country view will be transformed into a hub of activity by Friday evening through Sunday morning. Brilliant, billowing hot-air balloons, arts and crafts booths, food vendors, plenty of fun activities, and crowds will pack the grounds for the annual Lincoln Balloon Festival. Activities in the downtown area will feature the Lincoln Art Fair in Latham Park, the flea market in Scully Park, the Art of Wine, annual library book sale, a fun park for kids and more on Saturday and Sunday. Postville Courthouse will be the site of an 1800s craft fair. Click here for all the details.
