The 31st annual Tiblow Days festival is right around the corner and Bonner Springs is filled with excitement and anticipation.

The festival, which starts tonight and runs through Saturday, will include a weekend of fun with activities such as a carnival, a barbecue competition, a parade, plenty of food, craft and vendor booths, and several live concerts.

The event, which is organized by the Bonner Springs-Edwardsville Area Chamber of Commerce, has had committee members busy for the past year but work is kicking into high gear as the days leading up to the event count down.

Charlene Biles, executive vice president and executive secretary with the chamber of commerce, said Monday morning that already the chamber’s office phone has been ringing off the hook with questions regarding Tiblow Days.

Marcia Ashford, chamber president, said the family-friendly three-day event should not disappoint those who join in the fun.

“It should be really exciting,” she said.
