Wichita Riverfest

May 29 - June 6

The Twilight Pops Concert has been a crown jewel of the Riverfest since 1974. Featuring the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, an annual highlight of the concert is Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture complete with cannons.

In one of those early years, weather forced the concert inside Century II and a cannon was placed on Kennedy Plaza. “It was the first and last year,” we did that, notes Jim Remsberg, veteran festival supporter.

The windows of Century II rattled and there was more than a little concern they might shatter.

Every year since then the cannons have been placed on the Douglas Street Bridge.

The 2015 concert will be opening night, Friday, May 29.
