Do you ever see something and get that warm, at-home feeling from the past? Whether it was the State Fair, or Joyland, or chili cook-offs, there’s always something that was so ingrained into your childhood, you’ll never forget it. No matter where you grew up in Kansas, there’s always that event or piece of yourself that’s just so linked to your state, you’ll always find someone else with the same memory. There’s plenty of things we all did, but these 11 are picked right out of Kansas childhood life. How many do you have in common?
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
