  • food vendors
  • caricature drawings;
  • a drum circle;
  • face painting;

"There are new and different pieces this year," said CCC art instructor Rebel Mahieu. "And we still have room for more if somebody has something they want to share."

There is no charge to attend. For more information or to volunteer, contact Mahieu at (785) 269-7065.
