Oct. 30 - Pirates, dinosaurs, ghosts and lots of other costumed characters from cute to scary filled the Ella P. Burr School gym for Lincoln's annual Halloween Party this afternoon from 4 and 6 pm. By 4:30, Lincoln Events Coordinator Shelly Crosby said that the first 200 goody bags had been handed out - and more kids were still coming in! There were treats, movies, games and a bounce house to keep the kids entertained, and a great time was had by all. For a slideshow, CLICK HERE. Happy Halloween!

More than 200 Attend First Fall Event

October 11 - Lincoln's first "fall festival" Sunday afternoon drew a good crowd, estimated at more than 200 people of all ages, to the downtown area. Event Co-ordinator Shelly Crosby said she was "very pleased" with the turnout. The weather co-operated, for the most part, with only a few brief showers coming in and out of the area. Temperatures were in the low 50's and actually felt quite warm at times.

There was something for everyone today and "wellness" was the theme this year. The Lincoln Historical Society said over 100 people visited the "Corro House" on West Broadway with George King reported "people had nothing but good things to say". The "Little Red Schoolhouse" in School House Park also saw a number of visitors too throughout the afternoon, he said.

The festival ended early this evening with a show by blues guitarist Mark Miller. One of the two unexpected highlights of the event was a lovely rainbow that appeared around 1:35 this afternoon. The other was Officer McLaughlin and Shelly Crosby performing the "Zumba" with the M.A.D.E. dancers. You can see that and more in our slideshow of photos and video taken this afternoon. Just CLICK HERE for the photos! A fun time was had by all!!

October 5 - On a beautiful fall day, we took a ride to Bradley to visit Leonard's Mills during their annual Living History Days. This is something we've done for three years in a row. We have plenty of photos, so you can see how the costumed re-enactors depict life from the 1790s to the 1860s. CLICK HERE to see what we found.

Here's the tree below (see the two photos under this story) on September 29. It's changed quite a bit!

Lincoln shines in the fall, even on a partly cloudy day!

September 29 - It's not necessary to drive very far to find natural beauty here in Lincoln. We took a ride around town today so we could bring you some more fall color, and we stayed right in the downtown Lincoln area. So if you're lucky enough to live here, save on gas and check out your own neighborhood! CLICK HERE to see what we found.

The tree above is usually one of our favorite and most colorful trees in Lincoln during the fall season. It's located on High Street (now the Enfield Road). This photo was taken on September 11 of 2008, and every so often we'll replace it with a more recent picture until it's all bright and beautiful!! So, check back often, and, don't be afraid to e-mail us pictures of your favorite fall tree!
