And where they come from

• Flight Festival celebrates the fact that we
•
•
•
•
are the air capital of the U.S.A.
It can involve lots of stunt planes
performing aerial tricks.
This years performances will be performed
by Red Eagle Air Sports, Red Barron Pizza
Squadron, and Oregon Aero Sky Dancer.
The date will be August 22, 2008 - August
24, 2008.
This festival is celebrated merely for public
enjoyment, and to celebrate our dominance
in the airplane making business.
River Festival
• The River Fest is about when the pioneers
•
•
•
decided to have a year long celebration of
the 100th anniversary of Wichita.
It was called the River Festival, because
the Arkansas River was such an important
resource they had the last day of the year
long fest along the river.
They held A carnival, hoe-down,
hometown fair, water shows, a pow-wow
and A fishing contest.
This is now an annual event and attracts
people from all over Kansas adding up to
about 350,000 people.
The 8th Annual WSU Car Show
• This is a car show created by
•
•
•
the Kansas W.S.U college
students.
This is all the college kids
showing off there ‘Hot Rods’
for everyone else.
This is funded by the college
students mostly, and
occasionally the college
funds some of it.
Last years’ winner was Wayne
Bagby with a 1949 Chevy
Truck.
Conclusion
• All in all Wichita does not have the
•
largest amount of festivals but it does
have some of the most entertaining.
I hope you enjoyed this power point
and learned something from it.
