Next Up: It's Time For A Change
It’s time for a change. Next Best Thing was intended to be a limited-run commentary focused on ways to stay connected digitally during stay-at-home orders. It will continue on, but as a public service announcement about local events, and we’re calling it Next Up.
So, next up is Wichita City Pride this Thursday at Naftzger Park. The all ages festival goes from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. with artists, musicians and performers from Wichita’s queer community.
The following day, June 25, brings a collaborative event to the Brickyard in Old Town. Starting at 6:00 p.m., From The Brickyard With Love features musician Rudy Love Jr. and family, plus DJ Carbon. Art in the Alley, a multi-artist show, will take place at the same time.
On Saturday, June 26, you can head back to Naftzger Park for LUNAFEST. Presented by Girls on the Run Heart of Kansas, it’s a one-night festival of films featuring strong women, recommended for ages 10 and up. Tickets are at girlsontherunks.org.
