WICHITA, KAN. - The 11th Wichita Women's Fair Feb. 20-22 at Century II will feature two free concerts, a game show patterned after "The Price is Right" and an entertaining look by a local panel at the male psyche. In addition, attendees will be treated to 350 exhibitors, demonstrations, fashion and hair shows, health screenings and the region's best shopping, all under one roof.
New this year will be audience participation versions of "The Price is Right" and "The Why Chromosome," a panel of Wichita men moderated by syndicated radio personality Kim Iverson of Austin, Texas.
Fair attendees will be invited to "Come on Down!" at 1 p.m. Saturday and participate in KFDI's newly created "The Right Price Game." Brian and Kellie from KFDI's morning show have created their own fun version of the popular TV show, "The Price is Right." Visitors to the Fair will be able to register for a chance to try their luck at winning several great prizes. Once contestants are selected, they will move to center stage to test their luck and shopping knowledge.
Austin-based syndicated radio host Kim Iverson will take the stage to host "The Why Chromosome" on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. on the Main Stage. "The Why Chromosome," which attempts to unravel the mysteries of how men think, is a popular part of her "Your Time with Kim Iverson" program, broadcast weeknights in Wichita by 105.3 The Buzz. She will moderate a panel of three men: Paul Petitte from Wesley Medical Center, Michael Schwanke from Channel 12, and Dusty Hayes from The Buzz. Following the program, Iverson will be at the Buzz booth from 4:30 to 7 p.m. to sign autographs and for photo opportunities.
Two free concerts will showcase Kansas musicians. Rockin'Horse members Gary Powell and Larry Pritchett will be featured at 6:30 p.m. Friday in a concert sponsored by KEYN 103.7. Their acoustic guitar sounds and vocals are reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s and feature favorites by the Beatles and Paul Simon. Powell is a popular Old Town performer and has opened for Ted Nugent, Deep Purple and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Pritchett's guitar aspirations took off in 1964 after seeing the Beatles on the "Ed Sullivan Show." The two teamed up in 2001.
A Wichita staple for more than five years, Lip Survis will perform at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Kissin' Country 102.1 Concert. Composed of Heather (vocals), Keith (vocals/guitar), Kevin (vocals/bass), Bob (vocals/keyboard) and Cody (drums), the group has played at the Wichita River Festival, The Shadow, Winfield Country Roundup, RD's County Line and at numerous benefits.
