The Next Nashville

The small Kansas community of Winfield intends to move forward with plans for a mid-summer country music festival. The annual, four-day event would be held in July. Already the host of a very popular annual bluegrass festival, it seems Winfield is looking to put itself on the map as a venue for outdoor musical events. A special note for my friend The Happy Catholic: there is usually very little rain in southeast Kansas in mid-July, reducing the liklihood of faceplants in mud puddles by small children.

And, even more to the point, I no longer have any small children to fall face first in the mud. They are young ladies, all grown up. :-)

Interesting that Winfield is going to add this new festival after all this time ... seems like a good idea except won't it be kinda hot for camping in mid-July, by the river with all those skeeters?

No, Julie. The girls are 4 and 2 and we are all in our 30s!
