TALK ABOUT TRADITION – It isn't a Labor Day celebration in Kiowa's Progress Park without the Cake Walk crew. The traditional favorite activity celebrated 50 years in 2019. These women have helped with the Cake Walk longer than they can remember: (from left) Janet Robison, Carol Sue Meyer and Laurie Hiltner. Not pictured is Bob Hays who still helps and organized the Cake Walk with his late wife Grace for decades.

CAKE WALKS ARE TIMELESS – For 50 years people have been walking for cakes at Kiowa's Labor Day celebration that commemorated 80 years this year, 2019. Many things go out of style, people walking for cakes is apparently not one of them. The Cake Walk music played all day in the park and the numbered bricks people step on in hopes of winning a cake were always full.
