| Plan Kansas Day Trips!
Labette County, Lawrence, Leavenworth, Lecompton, Liberal, Lincoln, Lindsborg, Linn County and Lucas. Those are just the "L" list of communities the public will learn about at the May 3 and 4 Kansas Sampler Festival to be held in Concordia's City Park. The "H's" include Harper County, Hays, Herington, Hiawatha, Hodgeman County, Hoisington, Hope, Horton, Humboldt, and Hutchinson!
You want specifics? How about the Grassland Gardens Nursery & Flower Farm, Miltonvale; the Little House on the Prairie, Independence, the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge, Canton; Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure, Salina; the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum, Chanute?
Those who attend the 19th annual Kansas Sampler Festival will find jaw-dropping amounts of ideas about what there is to see and do in Kansas. Taking place north of I-70 since the festival started at the Penner Farm near Inman, North Central communities will dominate the festival but travel ideas, food vendors, Kansas products, wineries, entertainers, and historic performers will come from every part of the state.
Organized by Cloud County Tourism co-chairs Susie Haver and Barbara Henry and supported by Kansas Sampler Foundation assistant director WenDee LaPlant, the desired outcome of the festival is to inspire people to travel the state year-round but to celebrate all that is Kansas during this one May weekend.
Festival hours are Saturday, May 3, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, May 4, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults; $3 for children 7-14. For more information go to www.kansassamplerfestival.com.
