Lincoln Park District

Lincoln Park District hosts all-day Fourth of July activities          Send a link to a friend

[June 29, 2007]  An invitation from the Lincoln Park District:

Each of us looks forward to the Fourth of July. Join us as we celebrate our independence, starting the holiday with an old-fashioned children's walking parade. Lincoln Park District joins the Lincoln Heritage Days Committee in presenting this event. We will begin at Scully Park (McLean and Decatur streets), with registration at 9 a.m. and judging at 9:30.

Decorate your tricycles, bicycles, strollers, scooters and wagons. Walk, rollerblade or grab your skateboard. No motorized vehicles permitted (wheelchairs are accepted). Even your dog on a leash is welcome! Decorations should be patriotic in theme and will be judged for originality, creativity and effort on the part of the child.

Parents are encouraged to accompany their children in the parade. Parents who do not walk can meet their children at the Lincoln Park District, 1400 Primm Road, where the parade will conclude and the winners will be announced. There is no cost to be in the parade, and preregistration at the Lincoln Park District is encouraged.

Be sure to stay after the parade and be a part of our water balloon fight. Our team will be formed from the young people in the community as we go up against Fire Chief Jim Davis and one of his firetrucks. Co-captains of our team are Mayor Beth Davis and Marcia Greenslate, executive director of Lincoln Park District. Everyone will be soaking wet when this is done, but it will be a great time.

You'll have just enough time to get dried off and have some lunch when we open the pool at 1 for an afternoon of relays, games and prizes. Cost is just $1 per person or show us your pool pass.

Plan to spend the evening on-site at the Lincoln Park District. All of our offerings will center around the driving range. We will have concessions opening at 6 p.m. so you may purchase a corn dog and a cool beverage while watching the free vintage ballgame, listen to the DJ starting at 8 and watch an awesome display of fireworks at dusk.

Vintage baseball returns to the park district with a hilarious, nostalgic blast from the past, pitting the Lincoln City Fire Department against Lincoln Rural Fire Protection District. Spectators will enjoy watching how the game was played many years ago and how the rules have evolved into today's sport. The first batter is up at 6:30. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and cheer your favorite team to victory.
