Yes, Kiowa is having their Labor Day celebration!


August 12, 2020

In this cancel-everything environment because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's refreshing to hear that at least one traditional event in the area is still going to happen.

The Chamber of Commerce in Kiowa, Kansas, met Tuesday and decided to move onward and upward with their traditional Labor Day celebration in Progress Park. “We're moving forward,” Chamber President Janet Robison said.

That's not to say the event won't look different. People are asked to use common sense and stay six feet apart.

The traditional ham and bean feed will be served free at noon like always. All other food booths are pending at this time. You can enjoy the Cake Walk and Bingo.

The Labor Day 5K Race was previously canceled. However, the chamber is planning for a fun walk starting downtown at 8 a.m.

There will still be a car show in the park. Watch for softball and volleyball tournaments.

Robison said more will be announced in the next few weeks. Hand sanitizer and masks will be available at this outdoor event.
