Leavenworth County to shuttle residents to festival
The steering committee responsible for bringing the Kansas Sampler Festival to Leavenworth County now wants to bring county residents to the festival.
The committee has contracted to have a passenger bus take 56 residents to this year’s festival in Concordia. The festival runs May 2 and 3.
On May 2, the bus will pick riders up at three points: Leavenworth, north side of K-Mart parking lot at 7 a.m.; Basehor, shopping center parking lot near Kelley's at 7:15 a.m.; and Tonganoxie Chieftain Park at 7:30 a.m. The festival-goers will arrive in Concordia at approximately 11 a.m. and will spend 3 1/2 hours at the festival. The bus will depart for home at 2:30 p.m., arriving back in Tonganoxie at approximately 6 p.m., Basehor at 6:15 p.m. and Leavenworth at 6:30 p.m.
The cost to use the bus is $25 a person, which also includes a ticket to the festival.
Keyta Kelly, the 2010 and 2011 festival director, said there are about 40 seats left.
Please contact Kelly at (913) 417-7575 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to ride the bus.
Kelly said they are also looking for volunteers to man this year’s Leavenworth County booth in Concordia. Please contact Kelly to volunteer. The booth will be on display in the courthouse rotunda, 300 Walnut Street, Leavenworth, from Monday April 20 through Thursday, April 23. Volunteers are needed to man the booth in the courthouse as well.
