Four State Farm Show Prepares For Muddy Weekend


“Wear rubber boots and come out and enjoy the show.”

O’malley Equipment has been with the farm show since day one.

Rick McKenzie says this year may be a little different.

“It’s a little challenge because of driving things in here and then we’re going to have a lot of clean up time that we normally wouldn’t have. There’s something out here for everybody,” says McKenzie.

It’s extremely muddy at the festival grounds for the four state farm show following Tuesday’s severe weather.

But with even more rain in the forecast, event organizers say the show must go on.

Lance Markley, with the Four State Farm Show says, “Seventeen or eighteen years ago the show was in July, we had very muddy conditions then too. We actually went on to have a very large attendance at the show. So we’re hopeful for this year the same thing will happen.”

Nearly 700 vendors have been signed up to be a part of the show.

And while they are still expecting large crowds this weekend, they are going to have to make some changes, like parking off site.

“We have 72 passenger buses that will bring them to the show. The locations are the Meadowbrook Mall in Pittsburg, the north side of the Kansas Crossing Casino, there’s a gravel parking lot that we will utilize. And then the labette community college west of the farm show grounds.”
