Yes, I have been many times and plan to attend again this year. A lot of fun activities for the kids such as bike, frog & turtle races, relay games, a parade, carnival games & rides, etc... also fun for the adults, especially Saturday when the band plays. There are no banjos in this band. Just good old rock and roll. Not that I have anything against banjos =)

I went every year from '63-'88, but I've only been twice since then--1992 and 2004.

I have not. But if there will be a vuvuzela band there, I might.

Actually there will be no civil war re-enactment. There will be a re-enactment of the wedding of Presidents Eisenhowers parents whom where married in Lacompton. Circa 1870.

No, but occasionally I've missed the McDonald street exit and had to take the K-10 exit that at least is entitled "LeCompton." It's happened at least three times.

I might go. Can I bring a cannon?
