Battle of the Lakes

June 26, 2009 at 1:05pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

The City’s Independence Day celebration will be held at Oak Lake again this year. That to the consternation of “traditionalists” who think the festival should return to its previous location at Holmes Lake on the other side of town.

I ask you, Lincolnites: which is the better location for the festivities, Oak Lake or Holmes Lake?

I don’t have a dog in this fight. As much as I love a good community festival, Independence Day for the Wilsons has always been more about spending the day with the family around home. I do have a bias toward Holmes Lake, but that’s only because I have spent much more time there and I love many aspects of the park’s recent facelift.

What’s your druthers?

Bring it back to Holmes.

When Lincoln’s Chief of Police was on KFOR recently he was asked which is a better location and he stated Oak Lake was for traffic.  It’s much easier to get the crowd out of OL than HL.

Trees block my view either way.

I’d say Holmes, homes.

For selfish reasons I like Oak lake because we just ride our bikes down the bike path and occupy a secret secluded location which seems like front row.

As the owner of a business in the haymarket, I like Oak Lake.  It brings more business to the downtown area.
