It was a Blast: Russell and Hays Sparkle with Fourth of July Spirit

A Faces & Places Roadie Blog  

The most recent stops on my Faces and Places tour itinerary were familiar names on my map. I've always associated Russell with its hometown hero, Bob Dole. My kids beg to stop by the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays each time we pass by on Interstate 70. This visit, however, offered a unique opportunity to see each community at its festival finest.  I was to visit Russell's Fourth of July Freedom Fest, followed by a visit to Hays' four-day celebration, the Wild West Fest.

Celebrate Czechs in Kansas

Get out your accordion and don your Bohemian best for this month's Czech Festival. One of the greatest small town parties in the state takes place July 26 to 28 in Wilson.

The town, just south of I-70 between Salina and Russell, celebrates its ethnic heritage each year on the last weekend of July. The 52nd annual festival will actually start a day earlier than usual this year, giving visitors three days to find a way to take part in the fun.
