In conjunction with the Calamity Jane Festival, people are asked to stop by The Famous in Princeton to pick up a wooden square to enter a contest for a painted quilt. The blocks will be displayed and judged on Calamity Jane Day with the contest open to everyone.
Something new for Calamity Jane Day is the addition of a man who will make balloon animals and other items. Tom Terrific, The Balloon Man, will be in Princeton for 3 to 4 hours on Calamity Jane Day. Also making his first appearance at Calamity Jane Day is Chiefs mascot, KC Wolf. KC Wolf will be in the parade and afterward will be in a booth to talk to children and adults.
