Festivals crowd the summer events calendar

There are festivals honoring fruits, vegetables, critters, beverages, national heritages, music and even a 19th-century anti-slavery activist (that would be the John Brown Jamboree and Music Festival on June 18-21 in Osawatomie).Of course, we also have our many county fairs, but they don’t fire up until July and August. The Fourth of July also will feature a bevy of area celebrations.
