Hutchinson To Be Called Smallville For 2 Days

KSAL StaffJune 16, 2014

Hutchinson is going to stake its claim to being the home of Superman this week.

The city will kick off its Smallville Festival this Thursday and officially change its name to Smallville Saturday and Sunday. The celebration grew from the June 21, 2013, induction of Superman into the Kansas Hall of Fame.

The promotion is based on a quote in a Superman movie, in which Clark Kent says he grew up in Kansas. Three Hutchinson men argue their town was where Superman was raised.

The city council voted to proclaim “Smallville – The Home of Clark Kent” in Hutchinson this weekend. It’s in conjunction with the Smallville Festival, followed by the Smallville ComicCon this weekend.
