The Lincoln Showcase is tagged “Lincoln’s Biggest and Best Party” and is sponsored by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. More than 800 guests attended the showcase on Saturday evening. The party was held in Beermann’s Plaza; the adjoining Fifth and F Streets were closed to traffic for the event as well.
Under warm starry skies, the guests tasted food, wine and beer samples from fifty vendors. Locals gathered in small groups to visit along the plaza and at the various tall tables set up in the streets.
Several dozen volunteers worked tirelessly to help set up, serve, clean up and assist during the evening. Raffle tickets were on sale and gave attendees a chance at $500 cash or a case of wine/gift basket combo.
Beermann’s Plaza was crowded most of the evening.
As the evening progressed, the excitement of the crowd grew stronger. When The Time Bandits took the stage playing their blend of classic rock, soul and oldies, the dance area filled quickly with appreciative folks ready to enjoy dancing under the stars.
