Wichita must manage annual aviation festival
City officials said they would work with several local groups to manage a scaled-down version of the Wichita Aviation Festival after a second company withdrew its proposal to manage the festival.
"The city is going to do basically what it did last year," said Mayor Carlos Mayans. "It was a city festival."
The event, scheduled for September, has been organized for the past two years by the city.
Officials estimate the festival will cost $400,000, with the city contributing $125,000.
John D'Angelo, who directed the festival during its first two years, said the city prefers another group spearhead and manage the event in 2005.
