Those looking for some great deals will soon have a perfect opportunity later this month thanks to the Liberal Chamber of Commerce. 

Bazaar Days 2022 will be July 22 (from 6 a.m. to the business’ closing time) and July 23 (regular business hours). Liberal Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Rozelle Webb said there should be something for everyone that weekend. 

“Throughout those two days, businesses will have some of their merchandise out on the businesses, typically on discount, and we encourage all businesses and restaurants to participate and have some bargains for shoppers,” Webb said. “Since everything is still a few weeks away, we’re currently asking businesses if they’d like to participate and if they are, to let us know. There are a handful of businesses that have participated every year, and I’m sure they will again this year, but at the moment, we’re still taking participants.”

1,000 T-shirts, a custom motorcycle, and a community worth celebrating



 It’s hard to believe we have already hit the midpoint of summer, but here we are in July. That means Seward County Community College is preparing to welcome the entire community to our campus as part of the second-biggest celebration of the year in Liberal — July 4.

In any other town, we would probably list Independence Day as the primary holiday that brings people together, but other towns don’t have Pancake Day. That said, July 4 promises to be even bigger and better this year, with a parade and park extravaganza planned before the traditional festivities held on the SCCC campus. You will be sure to see Saints at all of the fun. The parade begins at 10 a.m. on Kansas Ave., moving north to end at Light Park. 

This year, Seward has made a deliberate effort to show up at area parades large and small. The project began at the suggestion of our Outreach Director Mike Bailey, whose daily work includes many highway miles traveling to the smaller towns we serve. He pointed out that after the pandemic and long months apart from one another, we are eager to reconnect with our far-flung Saints family. We want to show up and let them know we care.
