|Third annual Celebration on the Square approaches|

With fingers crossed for a nice morning, the Chase County Tourism Committee has scheduled Celebration on the Square for June 20. Tourism Coordinator Claudette Swanson said the 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. event at the courthouse in Imperial “should be a nice morning.”
Swanson said changing the date to June three years ago, when the name was changed from Art in the Park, was wise, as the weather is usually cooler than in July.
Crafts, jewelry, flowers, leather goods, food and more will be served at various booths scattered throughout the courthouse grounds.
Swanson said ice cream will be served, children’s activities will be coordinated by Crystal Peterson and a Bouncy House will be available to children.
In addition, Paul Siebert, who has appeared in Imperial before, will provide music during the morning. He plays solo acoustic guitar, hammer dulcimer and sings.
Little Brown Jug Band
The Chase County Area Arts Council invites the public to enjoy “Little Brown Jug Band” at the courthouse, and then at The Imperial Theatre at 2 p.m., following Celebration on the Square.
Little Brown Jug Band promotes old-time music in an exhilarating show that is easy to listen to and fun to watch.
The band uses fiddles, guitar, banjo and upright bass to provide an entertaining show for all ages.
Swanson urges people to bring lawn chairs and enjoy the musical entertainment.
