Parade Of Nations

June 09, 2009 by Sheila
Be there June 19 at 6pm when the Parade of Nations kicks off the evening entertainment during the first day of the Celebrate Lincoln International Festival. 
 
Like the Parade of Nations featured in the Olympic Games, Celebrate Lincoln’s Parade of Nations introduces the festival’s audience to the nations and cultures that shape our community.
 

The goal of the Parade of Nations is to raise awareness and appreciation of the diversity of our community through a parade including the flags and clothing of those nations represented in our population.
