First "Party in the Parks" Festival is Saturday

The "Party in the Parks" series of public arts festivals begins Saturday, June 29 with events planned from 4 to 9 p.m. at Union Plaza. No admission fee will be charged, and several food trucks will be selling refreshments. Activities include the following:

"Party in the Parks" is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) as part of its "Art Works" initiative. The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department collaborated with community arts organizations and civic leaders to receive an NEA "Our Town" grant to begin a summer entertainment series in new civic event spaces, such as Union Plaza. Future festivals are being planned for July 27, August 17 and September 28.
