  • 12:00 am The Nothing Festival

    Let’s all just come together on this great day and celebrate… nothing. You know that special time late in May, when school’s out, summer’s just beginning, and we all take that big sigh of relief? Finally, an event (or non-event) to celebrate having a little more free time. Enjoy a cup of coffee. Stroll down the sidewalk and chat with friends. Take your family out for a donut or just lie on a blanket in Triangle Park. We love and appreciate K-State and its students, but isn’t it great to kind of feel like we have our town back for awhile? That’s the idea behind The Nothing Festival: to celebrate the town we call home. THREAD (1224 Moro St.) is selling T-shirts with The Nothing Festival logos on them for $15/each. All proceeds benefit the Aggieville BusinessAssociation and the Aggieville Street Lighting Project.
