PARADE: Join Mike & Team Pompeo for Old Settlers Days in Mulvane!
Join Mike and Susan to celebrate our primary victory–and begin working toward a second 2014 election victory–with our first parade of the general campaign (and one of our favorites)! Come walk with us in Mulvane this Saturday, August 16th, for the historic 2014 Mulvane Old Settlers Days. Stick around afterward for a talent showcase, an evening rodeo, a street dance, and a carnival, too! It’s the perfect way to spend the day with the whole family. And don’t forget to wear your comfortable parade shoes! We’ll provide plenty of water bottles for our parade walkers, as well. For a complete list of activities at Old Settlers Days,
The first organized Old Settlers Picnic was held in 1884. The annual parade started in 1915, and the Old Settlers Days festivities have been going strong ever since. A covered wagon and oxen are an important part of the parade each year. Come experience this unique piece of South Central Kansas history on Saturday!
