WELLINGTON KANSAS APRIL 26 & 27 AT THE HIGH SCHOOL GROUNDS. A NEW FESTIVAL YOU SHOULD ATTEND!!!!!!!!!!
CHISHOLM TRAIL WILD WEST DAYS
For the first time a new festival is shaping up for Wellington Kansas and I am going to be a part of it as well as the KANSAS WESTERN MUSIC ASSOCIATION. This will be the WMA-KS State Showcase. There will be lot of things going on and it is all family friendly. You might even learn something.
On Friday at 5pm the Chuckwagons will be setting up getting ready for a competition on Saturday. At 8 there is a quick draw competition. And at 7 there is a Cowboy Poetry contest, music, rope and gun spinning and tricks.
On Saturday morning the Chuckwagons start cooking for their competition at 8am. At 10am 19th century children's games will be conducted by the Wellington FFA. All the western vendors, arts & crafts booths will also open.
At 11am the fast draw contest begins and at noon the chuckwagon meals are served. Western music begins and continues through the afternoon by the members of the Western Music Association.
The extra special event Saturday evening in the Wellington High School Gym is THE WEST IS WILD AS EVER. The WWE is a special combination of the DIAMOND W WRANGLERS, JUDY CODER, AND 3 TRAILS WEST. This exciting show of super talented musicians will please everyone from 3 to 103. This new road show was debuted in Emporia and the show is going on the road.
Performers for the stage events include: Diamond W Wranglers, Judy Coder, 3 Trails West, Jeff Davidson, Ron's Cowboy Poetry (Ron Wilson), Ed LeValley & the Slate Creek Drovers, Brad Doc Hamilton, Prairie Rose Rangers, Roger Ringer & Peggy Coleman, and Ashton Burel.
Like I said it is family friendly costing $3 for a button. $10 for the Chuckwagon meal, and $10 for the grand finale the WEST IS WILD AS EVER.
You know that no endeavor like this just happens and there is a great committee that has been working for a year planning this. This is another example of what makes rural Kansas so fun. Backing the whole event is sponsored by the WESTERN MUSIC ASSOCIATION - KANSAS, AMERICAN AG CREDIT, PRAIRIELAND PARTNERS JOHN DEERE, AND IMPACT BANK.
The greatest sponsors will be you coming out, having fun, and making this a special Kansas event.
