The Smoky Hill River Festival was this weekend in Salina, Kansas. It's the best art/music event in all of Kansas (according to Chris and I, who are festival experts), and we try to get there every year if we are not out of town.
It's in a great park with lots of trees and plenty of shade.
Everywhere there is someone or something interesting and amazing to look at.
Artists give craft demonstrations, you can buy a hand carved rocker, and cute girl groups provide excellent music.
There is something for everyone at the festival.
This little miss left her chair unattended while she perused the racks for a one of a kind new dress.
There was pottery for multiple uses, indoors or out, for you or your birds.
The Miller clan was there en masse. With matching shirts so no one would get lost.
The festival is always held the first full weekend in June. You might want to schedule your next trip to Kanas to coincide with it.
When you hear the fife and drum corp as you process over the bridge into the park you will know you have arrived. Because sister and I are headed to Germany in a week, I was very careful with my spending at the festival this year. HOWEVER, there was a certain beeswax encaustic artist whose work really caught my eye. I might have written down her name in case Chris wins the lottery while I am gone.
