“Yes … it’s always fun to go through to see the different crafts and people. We’ve been to it at least a half-dozen times of more.”

Spacehot, we have a-holes like that in Lawrence, too. I have been to Tonganoxie Days in the past, but not for a long time. I'm going to be enjoying my high school reunion in Neodesha this weekend, though, so I can't make it this year.

[ I do not go to any of the "quaint little towns" near Lawrence. These places are not like Mayberry. They are creepy. Lots of incest and inbreeding. 100% racist white people. I once had an acquaintance who lived in Eudora about 10 or so years ago. One afternoon a young black kid was going door to door selling encyclopedias ore something. This acquaintance told the kid he would be wise not to be in town after sundown. I no longer acknowledge knowing this person. ]

Wow...honestly. This has to be one of the most ignorant posts I've ever read. There are racist individuals in (I would bet to say) EVERY city. As far as the incest and inbreeding comment, I'm not even going to waste my time responding. Tongie Days is definitely not the place for "boozing" it up. Its a family event that hundreds of kids, teens, adults, and even seniors enjoy. And, as a resident of this "creepy, quaint" town, I have to say....I'm find comfort in knowing you are NOT a resident, too.

I have to say that any local "festival" would be immeasurably more entertaining with some of that "free liquor" stuff. Hey, let's just have a "Free (State) Liquor festival" as I'm guessing that would draw a good crowd.
