Walnut Valley Festival Planners Taking Wichita-Area Rains in Stride

Organizers of next week's Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield are working out what to do about heavy rains in the area as campers gather for the annual event. Walnut Valley Association Media Director Rex Flottman (FLOAT-man) says some campgrounds are flooded. 


As of Friday, the 45th annual Walnut Valley Championships are still on track to get underway on September 14th. For more updates on the status of the Winfield camping facilities and information on the festival, visit wvfest.com, or download the new Walnut Valley festival mobile app for Apple and Android devices. 

========================

Wichita-Area Rains Not Expected to Derail Walnut Valley Festival 

The heavy rains that have been moving through the Wichita/El Dorado area are causing some logistical changes for next week's Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield. Festival coordinator and media director Rex Flottman (FLOAT-man) says campers already on-site are being moved to higher ground, but that minor flooding hasn't proven to be a big problem in the past. 


The 45th annual Walnut Valley Championships get underway on September 14th. For more updates on the status of the Winfield camping facilities and information on the festival, visit wvfest.com, or download the new Walnut Valley festival mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
