Free Entertainment July 13 at Gunn Park

Frank Halsey, the event organizer, hugs his grandson following a first place win in the 2018 kids’ race.

“The Marmaton Massacre Festival is rapidly approaching,” Frank Halsey event organizer said. “Once again I’d like to get the invitation out that Saturday evening entertainment is for our community.  We would love to see locals come to enjoy the evening. ”


The event is held at Gunn Park on the west side of Fort Scott at 1001 Gunn Park Drive.


“The race part is important because it draws a lot of visitors to Fort Scott, but our real goal continues to be providing an evening of entertainment for visitors, as well as locals,” he said.

The Kansas State Mountain Bike Championship will be held Saturday starting at 10 a.m.


There is a free kid’s bike race at 5:30 p.m. for children under 10 years old.


A participant jam session will be at  7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 13, followed by a performance by Damaris Kunkler.


Sam and Louie’s Food Truck will be selling food.


Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy Gunn Park as a backdrop of this entertainment.

The event is provided free by Gunn Park Trails.
