Highlights From THURSDAY Wheat Festival Activities!

The 121st Kansas Wheat Festival is full steam ahead! On Thursday, most of the activity centered around the downtown area. The “Edible Books” were on display at the Wellington Public Library – very creative! Several “CUP” entries at #7 Coffee House are lining up on the counter top! There were Bed Races, Cow Chip Throwing (using HONEY BUNS), tricycle races and more. And of course, live music from Heritage Park, the Food Court, the Misting Machine…awesome day and evening. The fun continues today (Friday)!!
