The Whiteway Run Saturday will celebrate the 107th anniversary of the Kansas byway, with caravans departing Atchison and Concordia at 8 am, and converging on Frankfort, which will host a car show and celebration. Other communities along highway 9 may also highlight activities as motorists pass through.
The Whiteway Run was suspended last year due to covid concerns. It is among many events returning in 2021, and Wayne Mitchell is joined on our Public Affairs program this weekend by Kylee Bergstrom, Director of the Seneca Area Chamber and Downtown Impact with plans for the Big Kansas Road Trip in Nemaha, Brown, and Doniphan counties next weekend, and Kate Tommer, Director of Marysville Chamber/Main Street who talks about the Mother’s Day Market, which returns to Marysville as well next weekend. Tune for the Public Affairs conversation Saturday morning, 7:10 on KNDY.
