Ideas flowing for 2003 festival

November 26, 2002

The next meeting to plan Tonganoxie Days is coming up, and residents are invited to participate.

The meeting will begin at noon on Dec. 5 in the City Council Chambers, 321 Delaware. Lunch will be served.

Slated for June 13-14, Tonganoxie Days 2003 will be held downtown, with activities also set for VFW Memorial Park.

The event is sponsored each year by the Tonganoxie Chamber of Commerce.

At the last planning meeting, held Nov. 7, coordinator Connie Torneden said she had already sent letters and applications to about 65 vendors who had participated in the Tonganoxie Days festival in the past.

Although the event is still in the planning stage, some of the suggested events include:

  • Dance recital by Starstruck Dance Studio.
    ¢ Performance by the Cowtown Cloggers.
    ¢ Country Cruisers car show at VFW Memorial Park.
    ¢ Motorcycle show.
    ¢ Quilt show sponsored by Sacred Heart Church.
    ¢ Living history display sponsored by Tonganoxie Historical Society.
    ¢ Auction.
    ¢ Barbecue cook-off.
    ¢ Demolition derby.
    ¢ Musical performances.
    ¢ Bicycle race and 10K run.
