Next Up: Float On The River And Get A New Perspective


There’s still time to register for mama.film’s movie trivia tomorrow night. It’s hosted by Hugo Phan of the KMUW Movie Club, and I’ve heard a certain local movie reviewer will serve as scorekeeper. It’s a series of four events, every other Thursday through August 12. Learn more at mama.film.

Starting this Friday, July 9, the City of Wichita is offering Floatin' on the River kayak tours on the Arkansas. There are four different types through September 15: moonlight Glow Tours, a Senior Tour and Sunrise Tour, and several Sunset Tours. Click here to see all the dates and times.

Next up is the Indian Art Market at the Mid-America All-Indian Museum on Saturday, July 10. Browse and purchase artwork created by local Native artists from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. While there you can also explore the Bring the Bosins Home exhibit, devoted to the works of Keeper of the Plains creator Blackbear Bosin.
