Walnut Valley Festival - Winfield, Kansas

Walnut Valley Festival - Winfield, Kansas

Winfield, Kans. — As we sit in the Walnut Valley Festival Office, it has been determined by Rick Meyer, that we have to re-schedule Land Rush for Saturday, September 12, 2009.

So, we have to ask each of you packing up to come to Winfield today to wait until Saturday morning. There will be a rise in the Walnut River over a small part of the West Campground and the Pecan Grove.

We are told by Cowley County Emergency Operations Center that the bottom of the concrete slab in front of Stage 3 is where the river will top out. The river will come up fast and go down just as fast!

There are about 550 units already in the Fairgrounds. We have been told we do not have to move these units out. We just cannot handle the influx of those of you who are coming. Please stay put and notify your friends—we will pass on the word as soon as we get anything new. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
