What has ears but cannot hear? A field of corn! Announcing the 14th year of Hoo Haw, an excellent live music performance with mediocre comedy. This familiar, fun-loving cast has been bringing in a full-house for 15 years now. The Columbian has maintained a strick cleaning regimen, has social distancing built into the online seating and we're dying to break a leg! There won’t be a full house but tickets are sure to sell out and the audience is sure to roar. Veteran actor and director Troy Hemphill heads the annual favorite with new skits, songs, and knee-slappers.?
Attend opening night (Aug 14) for dinner and dessert before the show to benefit programming at the Wamego Public Library.?

"K-State Fans: Are You Ready?" is the popular rallying cry before the Wildcats' football team storms onto the field each Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The excitement fans exhibit at home games is cranked up before each season at Purple Power Play in the Park, hosted in City Park the Thursday and Friday before each season-opening football game. Larry Norvell Band Shell is the center of activity as vendors circle the park and K-State Pride of Wildcat Land performs on stage with cheerleaders and Classy Cat dancers.
Any appearance by Willie Wildcat sends children and adults alike into a frenzy of excitement. More fun, coaches address the throngs of purple-clad fans each night of the rally with fireworks to culminate the event.
