The sun was bright overhead, and near perfect weather set the stage for the 25th annual Kansas Sampler Festival in Wamego. Hailed as the state’s largest traveling festival by organizers it showcases talent, and products from all over the state of Kansas. This year’s festival celebrates the 25th anniversary of the event.
Organizers are saying over 7,000 festival goers have dropped by so far, and if the trend continues it will be the largest Sampler in the smallest town to date.
Wamego Police Department assistant chief of police Paul Schliffke says the event has been a success, and praised the community and surrounding law enforcement agencies for their support.
