The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism “roadies” are headed to Salina.
As part of the five-month road trip Faces & Places Tour across the state they will be in Salina later this week during the Kustom Kemps of America’s Leadsled Spectacular.
The event in Salina is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Oakdale Park. There are also drag races Friday night at the East Crawford Recreation Area.
The Roadies won’t be hard to identify. They are driving a colorful, graphic-wrapped minivan.
At each stop along the tour they distribute Kansas Travel Guides, maps, and other giveaway items. They will also visit with event visitors, snap photos and shoot videos to share on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks – and encourage visitors to share their experiences on social media, too.
Including the stop in Salina, the Roadies are scheduled to visit events in more than 20 communities before the tour concludes in mid-October.
