More Artists in Salina

Cue Snoopy's imagination and "here's Kansas City's art magazine editor not being able to figure out Flickr and Wordpress simultaneously and after two days of slogging around in the sun," ergo some more photos from the Smoky Hill River Festival, in case anyone is watching and wants to spend Father's Day out in mid-Kansas.

That looks like fun! Allie and I need to go to that next year. We were just in Salina briefly the weekend before, passing through on our way home from Lucas. We stopped at the art center and were very impressed.
