For the last ten years, the town closes down streets and opens its arms to everyone for a free day of the blues.&nbsp; Wed, 25 Sep 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/25/Big-City-Blues-In-A-Small-Town-Setting/3076/ Paxico Serves Up Meatloaf Festival http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/7/Paxico-Serves-Up-Meatloaf-Festival/2151/ There’s plenty of chili cookoffs and barbecue competitions throughout Kansas, but as far as I know there’s only one Meatloaf&nbsp;Festival. And no, this event is not about the famous hard rock musician named Meat Loaf I listened to in college. Held in Paxico, the festival named for one of our favorite comfort foods features a parade, car show, music, children’s activities and, of course, the Meatloaf Cookoff as the highlight of the day.
