Lincoln Shrine activities

The inaugural Lincoln Pilgrimage took place in 1940 when 105 Boy Scouts from Riverside made the hike through Redlands to the Lincoln Shrine. Since then, upwards of 3,000 youth participate in the event.

Selected youth will walk a floral arrangement made by Hockridge Florist of Redlands from the Bowl program across Eureka Street to the Lincoln Memorial Shrine, 125 W. Vine St .

The youngsters will place the arrangement in front of the Lincoln bust at the shrine as a commemorative reminder of their dedication to Lincoln 's leadership and character.

The Lincoln Memorial Shrine will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. the day of the pilgrimage. After the Lincoln Pilgrimage Bowl program, Civil War re-enactors from the 116th Pennsylvanian Volunteer Infantry Regiment will be set up in a Civil War encampment at the Shrine for the youth and adults to visit and photograph.
