  • Festival brought out ‘the best’

    The Lincoln Days Festival was a success once again.

    The Lincoln Days Committee continued the tradition of tried-and-true events like the pioneer games, quilt show, parade and look-alike contests. There were several improvements – such as the 1,001 pieces of children’s artwork adorning the windows in businesses along Lincoln Boulevard. The contest is always fun – but this year the students and their teachers outdid themselves.

    My favorite? Lincoln as a superhero.
