I've kind of been dreading this weekend in a way. So much going on in one weekend. I really didn't want to miss anything but I was unsure how we were going to get it all in and be happy doing everything. I am pleased to say that after day one of the weekend, we have hit everything we wanted to and are well rested and ready for day two!
Here to read about it. It is a truly unique museum, and is worth the price of the ticket to see it once if you are ever in the area. I grew up watching the show once a year on TV, so the movie has a special meaning to it for me. I fear that the younger generation, who has netflix and instant gratification on youtube, probably won't understand that specialness of the Wizard of Oz. Use to, when the original munchkins were alive, they would travel to Wamego for the festival, and it would be a multiple day event with vendors and Oz fanatics from all over. Now, due to there being no living munchkins from the movie, it is a much smaller, but just as fun of an event. Lots of Oz themed characters running around and Oz themed vendors and games. Little red loved bouncing in the bouncy house the most. We bought the all day pass for him and we got our money's worth. We would go shop and go back to bounce, go eat, go back to bounce, go look at the car show, go back and bounce. The only trouble was they had one of those inflatable obstacle courses, and he of course wanted to do that instead of the boring bouncy castle. He probably could have made it through, but i felt like he was a tad bit young for some of the climbing portions.
