County represented at Kansas Sampler Festival
Despite snow and cold, windy conditions during the setup week, the Kansas Sampler Festival weekend brought sunshine and 4,500 people to Liberal’s Light Park.
More than 100 Kansas communities were represented through tourism booths, Kansas products, historic performers, musicians, and food vendors.
Marion County Economic Development Director Teresa Huffman represented Marion County in the Flint Hills tent.
Huffman said she is always surprised at the many connections between festival attendees and Marion County no matter how far away it is.
“It’s always enjoyable to speak to people that are from Marion County or have family here in the county,” Huffman said.
The festival will be in Wamego in 2014 and 2015.
