The sixth annual Big Kansas Road Trip (BKRT) takes place May 2-5 in Ellsworth and Lincoln counties plus the community of Lucas in Russell County.
The goal of the Kansas Sampler Foundation annual event is to provide first-hand experiences in rural communities for the general public, according to Marci Penner, co-director of the foundation.
Dozens of attractions and merchants open their doors and plan activities during the four-day event. Visitors choose their own pace and which of the a la carte options to include.
Itineraries can be planned by visiting bigkansasroadtrip.com or perusing the BKRT color print guide. Options include grassroots art, military history, missile silos, geologic gems, petroglyphs, lakes, post rock structures, hiking trails, museums, a microbrewery, made-from-scratch restaurants, unique shopping, and even a drive-in movie theater.
