New Dairy Daze festival set for next June at Basehor school
Planning for Basehor Dairy Daze, a new annual festival, is proceeding well, organizers said. However, event planners are still awaiting a signature calling card for the festival, planned for next year.
The Monday, Aug. 1, deadline is fast approaching for area artists to submit entries for the logo contest. The logo selected will be used to promote and identify the Dairy Daze festival. Not only will the winning artist receive the notoriety that goes along with winning, but also a $50 cash prize.
The Dairy Daze festival will take place Saturday, June 3, 2006, at Basehor-Linwood High School. An organizing committee, comprised of local residents and organization members, has been meeting for months to plan the festival.
Organizing committee member Jenne Laytham said anyone interested is invited to participate in the group. Most often, the group meets once a month at the Basehor Veteran's of Foreign Wars post, 2805 N. 155th.
The festival was named as a way to pay homage to the city's past history of dairy production, Laytham said.
"It really became clear that dairy was our history," she said.
