The 2012 Lincoln Holiday Parade, Christmas tree-lighting and merchants’ open house drew large numbers on Saturday evening. The weather cooperated, bringing clear but cool skies for the festivities.
The parade featured vehicles of all types, including street-legal golf carts, rock-hopping 4-wheeler trucks, fire engines and an enormous animated red-nosed dinosaur. Young spectators scrambled for pieces of holiday candy tossed into the crowd along Fifth and F Streets of downtown Lincoln.
After the parade ended, Beerman’s Plaza was the site for live music and the lighting of the Holiday tree.
