planning ahead, country music festival and an airshow Topeka KS late June 2021

QuoteQuote:
. . . The last weekend of June 2021 is expected to be a busy one for Topeka.

At a news conference Tuesday morning, officials with Visit Topeka, Country Stampede and Vaerus Aviation announced intentions to hold the 25th annual Country Stampede music festival in the capital city from June 24-26. But next year, the country music festival will soar to new heights, as it concludes with an air show, “Thunder Over the Heartland.”

“It’s a really unique opportunity to have a whole weekend full of entertainment, to allow people that are coming in from out of town to have a reason to stay,” said Brooks Pettit, president of Vaerus Aviation. “We have a lot of good partnerships established to make sure this event a huge success.”

Thunder Over the Heartland is expected to take place June 26-27 at Topeka Regional Airport. The airport neighbors Heartland Motorsports Park, where Country Stampede is set to be held..

Country Stampede attendees with a festival pass will be able to enter the airshow at no additional cost, and there will be buses shuttling people back and forth between events. Those not interested in the music festival will be able to purchase tickets solely for the airshow, which is expected to feature a special night display that Saturday. . .

Lets hope it goes ahead,The ByronBay BLUESFEST happens each Easter and is in the planning stages as well.

I'm not optimistic though,the Vira(my abbreviation) is here to stay and wont be gone in the short term of 12 months from now.

It must be great to have a festival closeby in normal times.Good luck!
