Artists gathered Sunday at Kane Family Farm for an awards ceremony for this year’s Tonganoxie Festival of the Arts. Organizer Keyta Kelly noted that there was a late entry this year — Mother Nature. Rain forced the children’s storytelling festival activities to be moved to Tonganoxie Elementary School. Youths originally were going to be bussed out to the venue just south of Tonganoxie, but heavy rains Thursday night into Friday forced a slight change in plans.
