Safe Rides Home from Lincoln Balloon Festival Available

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN – Healthy Communities Partnership is encouraging those celebrating the Lincoln Balloon Festival to call for a free ride home.

The festival will be happening on August 28 and 29. Safe Ride will be available those days to those in Lincoln who need a ride home.

These safe rides will also be available on Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Healthy Communities Partnership Manager Angela Stoltzenburg says Safe Ride will help keeps streets safer when children and families are more likely to be celebrating away from home.

“Our hope is that the community will remember that the service is available and choose not to drink and drive,” Stoltzenburg explains.

To receive a ride home within the city limits, Healthy Communities Partnership advises residents to ask the bartender for a Safe Ride ticket.
