Grandstand

Its time to load up the Polar Express and find the most festive holiday displays around Lincoln while helping out Lincoln’s Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach. This year, an app from Grandstand Apps makes that even easier.

Locations around Lincoln are mapped on the simple to use tool with descriptions and custom pins so you can find each location easily. No longer will you need to take time away from preparing the hot chocolate prep to map out your route. Let the app do it for you.

The Lincoln Lights app features homes across the area that include holiday displays. Some homes sync their light displays to music, others feature every inflatable holiday character you can imagine, and they all have a place on the Lincoln Lights tour. Our guide includes a list of many homes that go festive for the season so that users can map a driving route around their neighborhood, or across town. Photos of some of the holiday displays are included as well.

The app also provides a place for Lincoln residents to submit their favorite locations for holiday light viewing. Visitors to the app can help add to the amazing list of displays by providing their name, the address and a description of the display.

In addition to mapping tour-worthy sights and sounds, we have a quiz to challenge your tour mates about holiday happenings past and present in Lincoln.

This app is provided as a free service to the community of Lincoln and we hope users of the app will consider giving a donation to Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach. The Mission of Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach is to serve the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Lincoln’s working poor, and homeless through outreach, advocacy, education and the provision of food and shelter.

Check the app for updates on lighting displays and to find out which homes are in your neighborhood. Download Grandstand Events from the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Upon opening the app, the Lincoln Lights event will be available from the app list.
